Steel Ice Fishing Rod

Postby JoeB1 » May Wed 24, 2017 4:01 pm

Someone gave me this awhile back. I've never seen one before, has anyone else ? Pretty heavy duty, I would guess it's for pike and large lakers or eyes. Not sure ?

Never saw one, but I have a steel casting rod that I have had since I was about 13. My dad gave it to me and I don't know how long he had it before giving it to me.
Fisherman's Prayer
I pray that I may live to fish
Until my dying day
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
And peacefully asleep,
That in His mercy I be Judged
BIG ENOUGH TO KEEP.

I found one in a flea market in Florida once. I think it's still around somewhere. It was old but someone had replaced the tip on it.

Joe that looks like somebody's do it yourself rod. Does it have a name or patent number. I got an old truetemper bait casting rod that was my dads, but it doesn't look at all like that.

Don't need to replace the tip or eyes on this thing, they're for formed right in. No markings on it so I guess someone made it up. Looks like it would do the trick for large fish, it has some flex to it.
