    PA Bamboo Makers

    I am researching the purchase of my first bamboo rod and would really like to purchase locally from a Pennsylvania rod maker. Can anyone recommend a builder in PA?

    George Maurer. Sweetwater Bamboo Fly Rods » Home. Lycoming Co., Pa.

    Len Codella at Bamboo fly rods Bamboo fly rod makers fly reels often has his rods in stock, but none are currently listed. Very high quality work. Lots of them in use in SE/SC Pa. where he started out. He built them in a fly shop off the Turnpike in Lehighton, Pa. for several years in the 90's.

    Re: PA Bamboo Makers

    I've seen Goldenwitch on PCN and have been on heir website. Their rods are beautiful and priced accordingly. I bit far for me to reach. Any opinions on Dreamcatcher Rods or Niemiera?

    Re: PA Bamboo Makers

    John Niemiera makes good rods. I heard he is pretty backed up right now, so delivery might be long.

    Thumbs up Re: PA Bamboo Makers

    Thanks Jeff and DT,

    I have been on both the Dream Catcher and Niemiera site and think that I will probobly go with one of these 2 makers. One because of the price, and two because of the asthetics of their rods. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Re: PA Bamboo Makers

    Although not in Pa, you might try Art Napolitano from Allentown NJ.
    I know The Sporting Gentleman in your area handles them.
