Tube. [Cat. 2017] 17-0242 g. –An elegant and wonderful-casting rod which will drive a narrow loop #5 at any reasonable fishing distance. James Green, from the San Francisco Bay area, CA, has been making fine glass rods for the last 20 years or so. He learned a lot by studying the tapers and construction of fine rods by Winston, Claudio, Scott, and others. He developed his taper knowledge and casting style while working with World-Class casters at the Oakland Casting Club and Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club. He designs his mandrels and blanks to his own taper specifications, and varies the taper by cutting different areas in the flag or glass cloth. I have sold a number of his rods over the years. They have all been a joy to cast, with excellent finish and components. They will paint a fly exactly where you want to cast. New. $695
