    SWAMPUS--No rifles? Surely you need seven of those in seven different calibers. May I suggest a .17, .22. 243, .270, .280, 30-06, .308, and .375. Of course you will also need seven scopes. Jim Casada

    Glad you still have all your marbles. I lost mine years ago, but that's a long story.

    Rifles? Let's not even talk about rifles. Fortunately, my wife thinks they all look the same. I'm no even sure I know how many I have. Between the ones in my safe and the ones on loan to friends, OK, let's not even go there.

    I would say in addition to the calibres mentioned earlier in this thread, one needs at least 3 or 4 flintlock muzzle loaders in calibres ranging from .36 to .58 and at least one Hawken in .54 or .58.

    M16 A2 Maximum effective range to a point target: 550 meters. To an area target: 800 meters. The only rifle I need, if I had one. I do have a .40cal S and W pistol and a 20 gauge pump. I don't hunt large game except with my hands (ok, I buy beef at the grocery store). However, I have developed a fondness for dear hair.

    Waterborn forgot to mention the bamboo rod I have been restoring for him for over two years now...hey, I got 4 kids...gimmie a break!

    As for myself:
    Winston 8'6" 3wt. bamboo
    Heddon 9' 6wt. boo
    T&T 9' 5wt
    Cortland 8' 4wt.
    9' Heddon 6wt. fiberglass
    8' 5wt Montegue bamboo
    9' 5wt H.I. bamboo
    and the rods I built for myself:
    6'6" Garrison 193 bamboo
    8" Payne 102 bamboo
    7'6" Partridge of Reddich 6wt. that has been dubbed "the grass cannon" (ask anyone who has cst this one!)
    5' 3wt. bamboo I built for the kids

    The thing about being a rod maker is that you will invariably wind up with a bunch of rods.

    Varmitcounty,

    I see you seem to like the boo like myself. I have one boo and never get to fish it. Man that really bites. I would love to see some pics of your rods. I love admiring cane rods.

    This is an off question for this post, but varmitcounty what is the longest cane rod made? 9 ft or longer?

    flyred06,
    Pretty much any length you find in graphite you can make with bamboo. The issue really becomes weight. Imagine how heavy a dressed out 10' bamboo rod would be. There is a guy up in the Washington State area that makes bamboo spey rods. The longest rod I have built is a 9'6" and it was a load if you planned on using it all day.
