Default First Fish on Bamboo

The other day I found a bamboo rod for sale on Kijiji, and managed to pick it up for a pretty cheap price. However, living in Toronto, the rod was being sold much closer to my home town, so my parents kindly picked it up, and had it waiting for me on my next trip home.

This weekend, I had to do some work in the area, and decided to spend a few days at home. I spent one evening fishing with my normal gear, completely forgetting about the new rod (video to come soon). When I arrived home, I saw the new rod sitting there, and immediately knew Id have to try it out the next day.

Luckily, in the few hours of time I had free, I managed to hook into one rainbow, and Im very happy with how it performed!

I cant wait to catch more beauties on this rod!

Tight lines,

Cody

A choice of 'Boo' or plastic ... I'll take 'Boo any time. These things are live-living things in your hand.

There are a lot of high-tech wonders out there that will throw bullet-loop, left-curve, s-cast, loop-de-loop pile casts into a 30 mile an hour wind. That's awesome.

For me, one fact remains constant: there's nothing more enjoyable than catching a trout on bamboo.
