    Dear Mark.

    Never seen this fishing concept before, looks interesting.

    Had you considered manufacturing a hiker’s staff which can double as a fly (and bait) rod for pared- down widerness backpackers ?

    Catch your own supper on the move ?

    I ‘ve been considering building something like this, this for years, but adding the handle reel-seating and tranporting even a small fly- reel make the concept cumbersome.

    Are there any paper publications I can read. ?

    I know of a stream, very overgrown, in SW England which would be difficult to fish in a conventional fashion. Full of darting summer trout. Which outfit would you advise ?
