      I have never really grown fawn of the telescoping rod. When I was in England I stoped to watch a fisherman fishing with a telescopping rod that must have been 15 20 feet long and when he hooked his fish he had a time landing it. Now I do have a fly rod that I use that breaks down small enough to get in my pack but its only 10 foot long. All in all the hub subject is great and informative.
