Cane cast & compare 10/17/20

Recommended Posts

To those of you who came to the September cast and compare on the fox river at Glenwood Park know what a success it was. So I decided to try the cane rod makers outing on Saturday morning October 17 - 8:00am until noon. That is Glenwood Park mile and a half south of the town of Batavia on route 25. Masks, gloves, and any other safety attire you would like as welcome.

Cane Cast & Compare 10/17/2020 8am – noon

Glenwood Forest preserve

1644 S. River St.

Batavia, Il. 60510

Come join us at Glenwood Forest Preserve on Sunday 4/28 as Jeff Fox , Illinois Bamboo Rod Builders hosts area bamboo builders & collectors for a day of testing, comparing & learning about bamboo fly rods. Come out & bring your bamboo to share. Other rods OK, I always have a couple glass rods to compare. This is a make up of the missed May 2020 event. Masks & social distancing requested. All outside event - hope to see you there.

A cool & at times wet morning. Seven enjoyed the time casting, twice that many  custom bamboo rods in the rack. We had three deer graze the lawn for awhile across from the pavilion & pass back through later. Thanks to Jeff Fox for organizing & Bruce Olson for help setting up. Gordon Koppin brought out his tri-hex 6 weight rod a rare build with great action. This is likely the last activity for some time as the Early show is cancelled until a less covid time.
