Default Re: Fly Fishing Bamboo

Doug, Great post. I too fished graphite for years, and regarded bamboo as either too expensive, or the realm of elitist snobs. Luckily, I was given a week at an Oyster course, and over the course of that week, I crafted my own bamboo rod. Yes, I was hesitant to fish it at first, but after the first time, I was hooked. It just felt so natural to cast a rod I had made from a plant mother nature had provided. And no, I'm not an elitist, or somebody with unlimited finances. I just enjoy the naturalist feeling of bamboo.
