I’ve always fancied a cane rod so on my recent big number birthday I took the opportunity to buy a “ deceiver” 7’6’’ #4 from Mark Campe.What a great job Mark has done making this delightful rod.I would also like to thank Stevel from the forum for the advice.

Was out for a few hours today to try it out and after a few casts I was getting in the swing of it covering my first rise I’m pleased to say I caught my first fish to black hopper.

Very nice Brian, it looks a perfect rod for your conditions.
And by the look of the bend in that rod, it's a very capable taper!
May you have many years of service and fish out of this first cane rod of yours.
Congratulations on landing a beauty!
