Just picked up a Fenwick FF112S (Stout) for steelheading Trinity, outfitting with a Galvan Torque T10 (Bronze) and MA Steelhead WWF W10 line, can't wait to try it out.
Fenwick. For a great history of the Fenwick rod company, see Vic Johnson's book of the same title (General Reference 2). If you collect Fenwick rods, you gotta have Vic's book. It covers not only Fenwick history and company ownership, but materials development, fly rods, bass rods, spin rods, ...

So I have a cool product idea for you, I call it Google+ Tours...the idea is around giving users the ability to show expertise, curate tours, and bring together a group of people around a geography to inspire...Create a product flow that 1) gives G+ users the ability to name a tour and choose a tour starting point either city or Latitude, Longitude.  Give them access to Zagat places (or Google Earth geographic points of interest if its a non-business), users can build a list of places to go from the starting point with comments on what not to miss for each place/business.  Tours could be micros (city scale) or Macro (country/state scale).  The tour could have information, a theme, a duration (this tour takes 3 hours/days/weeks etc).  After the user creates the tour, they can list the tour in the travel community or on a Google Tour landing page.  G+ users could then browse tours by place or topic.  There could be travel advertising opportunities or targeting for those who are interested (click thru) for tours.  The curation of tours would generate groups of affinity and expertise around geography and interests.  Tours could drive community interest, define G+ users by taste, and give insight to aspirations of travel to places.  Tours could be rated by other users.  Some examples that show flavor of tours: 1) A bar crawl in San Francisco, 2) Wine tasting in Napa, 3) a tech guide to South by Southwest, 4) A surfer's guide to Costa Rica, 5) Fly fishing Russia's east coast, 6) Switzerland to Italy by train, a guide to visiting Como Lakes.  Lots of opportunity, its social, it drives affinity, commerce can wrap around it, lots of advertising potential...if you like the idea...could you hire me to implement? :)

I totally identify with your post. I was brought up on the Apple II and IBM PC back in the day...I remember when I was working at UC Berkeley while attending (pre-web based Internet, as we had Gopher and email), and my workmate and I were ideating that one day people would not have to carry books around, that there books and courses would be wireless-ly communicated to personal (portable) computers...its great that we can still ideate on what is to come in ten years, as it will all become smaller, faster, easier, more intuitive, and maybe without keyboard or mouse, just voice, thoughts and the ether... :)

Organizations around the world use Google Maps Engine to host their geospatial data: ecological records used in the fight against habitat destruction, census income and age distributions, and up-to-date store locations and ho...
