Catfishing poles are traditionally bigger and sturdier because catfish like to put up a struggle and send you on a wild ride. The imported poles are very traditional looking with smooth tan surfaces occasionally patterned with a natural patina. The imported poles tend to be very regular and straight although they occasionally bow outward and might have slight hairline surface cracks. To achieve their smooth shine, freshly cut poles are dried in a low-oxygen high heat kiln. These poles are generally straight and crack-free although, like all bamboos, occasional fissures and bends sometimes occur.

Warmerdam (probably the greatest pole vaulter before S. Bubka), which would survive for 15 years. Its advantages over bamboo were obvious: it did not break, was lighter and had practically the same spring as bamboo. An american brass and aluminium alloy pole was introduced practically at the same time. While steel poles were becoming all the rage the real revolution started but went practically unnoticed. However, once people had the idea of a fiberglass pole the progress in quality was rapid.

As the USSR began to clamp down on religion after the October Revolution, shamanism (inherently Siberian) and Sakhan ritual poles were markedly changed into more secular pieces. At the same time, Pacific Northwest poles have become commericalized in the disaspora and the non-native public decries any religious significance. However, in 1991, the Haisla discovered their totem pole in a Swiss museum in Stockholm.

This film is a documentary the Haisla and their work to return the totem pole to their own land 1,000s of miles away in BC. The US Forest Service began to round up abandoned Alaskan totem poles beginning in 1938. Statements from tourist-guidebook writers that have not examined the older carvings on the realistic-style Ainu totem poles are incorrect in stating that totem poles originated in the Pacific Northwest.
