He won’t be buying anymore rods now!
This year in the world of cane rods has been all about, “Do you think we could ______?”
4 pc 7’6″ 4wts and 3 pc 10’6″ 7 wts and faster than ever and More semi parabolic? I don’t know if it’s been all fun and games for Jim Downes but it sure has been fun for me watching the smoke pouring out of his ears!
So our buddy Downsie at ljdownesrodcompany.com has a new rod for 2012: a 7′-0″ 3/2 4 weight, with Thomas-like wraps in red tipped black with full intermediates, complete with an Arne Mason leather tube for $1895. All Downsie’s rods are flamed to a medium brown and fitted with nickel-silver reel seat hardware and ferrules (blued hardware is no extra charge). Rods are guaranteed against defects in workmanship for life and carry an unconditional guarantee for one year from the purchase date.
