I had intended to post some pictures of Paul in the original post and something happened, I was a bit rushed and forgot to post them.
These pictures are from the trip to Lake Hebgen Montana in 2011. It was still a little cold there early in the season. You notice in some of the pictures we are bundled up and sometimes wearing gloves however, there were a couple of nice days also.

It was a fun trip for good memories. It was a family tradition that Bob took Paul and his brother Eric to Lake Hebgen every spring for a fishing trip. It was quite an honor to be invited. This turned out to be the last trip that they made to Lake Hebgen; Bob was too ill the following year and passed away sometime shortly thereafter.

You're absolutely right, it's a Fenwick!
It's really a shallow crankbait rod but I find it works really good as a trolling rod. I can't use a baitcaster very well because of all of the surgeries on my left hand. I certainly don't have the strength and flexibility in that hand with the fused wrist to be able to cast a baitcaster with my left hand.
I can reel it okay with my left hand but my coordination with baitcaster has never been good even casting with my right hand. So I pretty much don't use a baitcaster in bass fishing, I use spinning reels. However, I can flip and pitch, roll cast and do pretty much anything with spinning reel that most bass fishermen would do with a baitcaster.
So this old Fenwick gets used whenever I go trolling, usually for trout and that only happens once every several years it seems. I'm not a huge fan anymore of trolling for trout. The last time I used this rod & reel was on that trip to Lake Hebgen in 2011, when that picture was taken.
