Re: Boo Porn.....
just a heads up, you can find a domestic US based bamboo maker to provide a bamboo blank for you to finish out on your own. they can be based on any of the many well-known established tapers or a modified one, sometimes a custom taper of the maker's own design. these bamboo makers are available to speak to through email or the phone, and can suggest the taper which might best fit your needs and style of fishing. prices can be from $200 to $500 for a blank. going this route helps support a local artisan in a highly specialized craft.
