Beta Carroting

A U.S. company named E21, which has been making golf clubs from scandium alloy for some time now, has licensed Curran from the Scottish firm CelluComp to create new fishing rods made with the carrot-based fiber. The rods happened to win the best-in-show award at the recent American Sportfishing Association’s international trade show (ICAST). And yes, you can see pictures of their new fly rods, and they are not all orange. Just go to this link, click on “Catalog” and then on the page for Carrot Stix Fly Rods in the lower left.

    They look pretty nice; however, the name needs a little work. A fishing rod shouldn’t sound like diet food.
