I took a stroll down to the docks here in Palatka, Florida this afternoon. Two grand kids needed to burn off steam and a walk downtown would take of the edge. I brought along the new Emmrod Packrod that has a synthetic handle material never before used for fishing rods. Super tough and very comfortable the orange color in this one is a prototype, the regular models will be in black. Made a couple of casts with a Mirrolure She Dog and got nailed by this little guy seeking bait fish along the rocks. The rod handles very well with low profile baitcasters like this Shimano Citica. The mono line it was loaded with it made a great topwater outfit in the tight places around the rocks and docks.
