While posting a reply to the "Winston customer service" thread and it reminded me of something I wrote about here some time ago: For most of my fishing, my favorite, "go to" rod is a 27 year-old Orvis Far and Fine: 7'9", 2 piece, 5 wt., unsanded blank. While I'm interested in all responses, I'm particularly intrigued by older models that have withstood the tests of time. Do you have one?
