Re: Fly Fishing Bamboo
Thanks for the great article.
I am very fortunate to be able to fish a neat little 8 foot 3 wt (not sure of the maker, originally sold by abbey and imbrie). Based on your other review of Sylk line, I just got a new one of those to try on it also.
I have several other bamboo rods that I would like to fish but am unsure whether I can do so without damaging them. I am reluctant to ship them to oregon because of some horror stories with shipping companies.
Do you have any contacts for people near Santa Barbara california (100 miles north of Los Angeles, on the coast) who can evaluate these rods for me and tell me what, if anything, needs to be done to fish them safely? Please email me if you prefer not to post this info.
