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.
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.
