Default Boo - yeah

In December I decided to make a bamboo rod. After talking with Dennis Stone, www.StoneRodCo.com, I settled on a 8' 4/5 wt and went to work. I finished it in March.

First time out was a beautiful day, but no fish.

Tonight I caught my first 'bow on a bamboo rod. I was pumped...

... and then I caught 7 more, all on CDC comparaduns during a very heavy sulphur hatch. I'm hooked on bamboo. Despite a slow start, this rod's got some mojo. The next blank is being ordered this week.
