GREAT IMPROVEMENT RECENTLY IN STEEL RODS To the progress in bait and fly cast- ing, F, T. Radecke, sales manager of the Richardson Rot[ & Reel Company, Chicago, attributes late improvements in steel rods, aml also in the increas- ing demand for this type of equipment. "Years ago," Mr. Radecke explained, "the purchaser of a steel rod asked for nothing but strength, so the imple- ment could be used in casting heavy lures. Later canle a demand for a rod with the same action as bamboo, and at present the manufacture of steel lift rods is progressing upon a plane with the higher priced, yet little more pop- ular, imported bamboo rods."
