do you know a bamboo rodbuilder,last name Smartt--have been buyin a few bamboo rods lately,have purchased a Maca,Bolt,Brackett(Winston),a Thramer,and Hidy--Robert Bolt told me he had heard of a guy in the Smokies,named Smartt who built bamboo rods.
Do not feel bad about the Billy-Bob name associated with Byron--Billy Bob is a name long associated with appalachia,texas,oklahoma,good bars,maybe good restaurants(hoping to score with the down home folks)----I guess we are all Billy Bob's,those of us born and raised in this special quadrant of the US--well Jan --uh--Paula thats about it for tonight----Any info on Smartt would be appreciated----

I do indeed know Stan Smartt. He is fabulous! He has taught bamboo rod building classes here at LRO. Call me at the shop and I will give you his contact information.

(Totally laughing about the name dealeo... ;D btw...even Billy Bob was a joke...his name is really Byron Bernard...II..)
