As the legend goes, many moons ago a composites technician named Keri Pantera broke a 12 foot 3XL heavy fiberglass rod over his knee to make a stout 8-ish foot rod, so that his over-sized hand carved lures could reach the giant bass he was targeting. He thought it was fun. Others saw what he was doing, and a revolution of new anglers was born. One day dark forces invaded the fishing world and Pantera was forced to go underground to evade these forces. Now only the most underground anglers know of him, he is known as the Mad Crankenist, or sometimes the Japanese Panther. If you find him you will unlock unimaginable fishing knowledge, and find eternal fun on the water.
