Returning to my roots (sort of)

My first fly rod was a Fenwick FF755, which I purchased in the early 70's.  Because I am not a collector of equipment, particularly if it goes unused for long periods of time and there is something else I'd like to buy, I sold it and purchased a Fenwick HMG GFF755 (which I still have and occasionally use).  Recently I became interested in fishing with fiberglass again and have tried to find an FF755 for a reasonable price.  Although I did find one, for a more acceptable price I found and purchased an FF705 (pictured below).  While it is 6 inches shorter, I'm sure that the experience of returning to glass will be just as rewarding.  Thanks to PayPal it's on its way from PA right now.
