    What size rod did you get? I have been fishing with bamboo for many years. It's hard to beat the feel, look, smell, etc. of a fine rod. I have looked at several of Walter's rods and they have all been very nice rods.

    Default new boo rod

    I'm very jealous!! I have talked to Walter several times about getting one of his rods. Unfortionately it will have to wait, I'm writing my annual check today to the IRS. Maybe we should all get our guide license and deduct all this gear off as "business expenses!"
    Take lots of picts. in Yellowstone, I am curious how the rivers look that time of year with the snowmelt.

    I fished with Glenn Allgood from LRO and he has a "Babb Boo" rod. The rod is beautiful. I too am very jealous, however the price is reasonable and I may have Walter build me one for X-Mas or something.
