If any of you haven't heard about this yet the Troutfest 2007 Bamboo For Brookie Rod is a great way to help a good cause and maybe take home a flyfishing treasure.
This years rod is a 7'4" 5wt 2pc with an extra tip. It is a hand-planed bamboo rod which is carmel in color. The reel seat is a cap and ring style with a beautiful burled spacer. The modified "cigar" style grip is made from 1/8" cork rings and features red glue lines. The silk guide wraps are garnet tipped in black. The rod comes with an elegant hexagonal bamboo rod tube and is contained in a gorgeous glass topped display case.
The rod is on display here at Little River Outfitters. Stop by and check it out. For those of you who can't make it by there are pictures online at http://www.troutfest.org/bamboo4brookies2007.html
