thats a real gem hidden away in that video. It is one hell of a long rod, imagine the tip end wobbling all over the place gives some really interesting action to the fly!

Fishing with a branch of a tree. Very cool video. Love the scene with the cat. Too funny!

The action he is giving the fly is almost exactly the same as Dr. Ishigaki demonstrated in the Catskills, kind of a slow "pulse" that causes the hackles to open and close. With the longer, wooden rod, the action isn't quite as subtle as with a light graphite rod, but it appears to be equally effective!
