Default Re: Bamboo and bluegills

Thanks for the response. I was starting to feel like I had done something to upset the whole forum. Like I said in the first post I was given this really sweet old bamboo fly rod the other day by a relative. It doesn't have any name or line wt, or anything marked on it. But its in great shape. From what I have read its most likely what is refered to as an occupied japan bamboo. Tons of these were made post WW2 and sold to american GI's. I don't know how strong it is so I was planning on just using it as my go to panfish rod. Somthing to play with, maybe teach the kids how to fly cast with. But it just got me wondering if there are many people out there that still use bamboo rods. And maybe if there were they might have some insight and advice.
