    Default LRO Member TNFishinStix Purple Heart Bamboo Rod Build

    Hey Guys and Gals,

    LRO board member TNFishingStix, aka Leo deMonbreun of the Nashville area, has volunteered to build a Purple Heart bamboo fly rod in support of Project Healing Waters. I'm proud to call Leo a friend and his passion and artistry of bamboo rod building is really shining through on this project. When I shared my idea of puttinng on a benefit event for PHW with Leo and a few other friends, he immediately jumped on board. I wanted to share it with the rod builders here. I have it posted to the Nabours and Friends Web Log. Stop by and take a look if you have a minute. It's very cool and he has sent a few pictures to the blog.

    The Purple Heart Rod by Leo deMonbreun for NaboursAndFriends to benefit Project Healing Waters.

    Very cool, Leo!

    The rod turned out great.

    Lot's of folks casting it and falling in bamboo lust. It brought $850 at the auction! Thanks Leo and thanks to Dan and Cheryl for bidding!

    Really fun weekend.

    Super nice looking rod. Tennfishstix is a great guy. I was restroing an old boo and he answered tons of questions for me. Some of the over and over probably! He always was nice and helpful. I want to say this was a truly noble thing for you to do Leo. I am sure it will mean alot to the buyer and the orgainization.
