Is it just me or does it appear these two survived the winter in the depths of Loch Geezer rather well?

And those of you of an age to have used such, notice the hollow fiberglass rod.

It looks like either a Fenwick or a Daiwa rod, Geezer. Yes, I'm old enough to remember.
Nice fish pix, dude. :D

Nice fish, Robert

I'm gonna try the crappie out tomorrow. No way they will be shallow since we had 2-3 inches of snow yesterday,but they may have moved into the deep coves down about 10 feet

Give me a couple of dates to work with and convince Chef Spray to do his magic.

Phil, the rod is a "Custom Built Rod for Florida Saltwater Fishing", Biscayne Rod Mfg. Co. I've had this one, which is probably between a 5-6 wt., and a larger 8-10 wt. one for decades. Both are 2 piece, have had ferrules replaced, cork handles replaced. The 'soft' action of the hollow fiberglass is very good for top-water flies, because the fly isn't yanked out of the fish's mouth as often happens when a fisherman sees his surface fly engulfed. And, it's usually surprising to graphite guys when they see how quickly the flexible glass rods can wear out a sizable fish. And for those who fish 'soft mouth' fish like crappie and spotted sea trout, the forgiving glass rods will land more fish.

Of course these are just the opinions of an old fart who stumbles down to ponds and streams and occasionally manages to hook a hapless fish.
