Streater's Thought of the Week

Every weekend Dick Streater gives us his thought of the week, culled from his voluminous files on fishing and tackle history.

Streater's Thought of the Week: Samuel Phillippe of Easton, Pennsylvania is credited with inventing the split bamboo fly rod, classified at the time by sportsman in the same category as the breech-loading rifle.

-- Dr. Todd
