Heavy rods before 'glass
I was reading this article, http://www.floridaflyfishingmagazine.com/destinations/698-fly-fishing-west-florida.html and he never mentioned the type rod he was using. I don't know if there was a standard in those days for line weights, etc. (I do recall seeing rods labeled 'for #5 line', etc) so what would these larger rods been made of in the late 1800s?
