    My New Bamboo

    Hi all

    Just took delivery of my new Bamboo fly rod made by Jason Collett. I cant even begin to describe this rod. It is just amazing. Jason has simply made a masterpiece. Its 7 1/2 ft 3pc 2tips. I test cast the rod in August before the final work was completed. I plan to post pics tomorrow when I have some time but frankly I am dying to get this rod on the river. The rod is beautifully flamed with an almost cinammon coloring to it. Wrapped in a reddish plum with blued ferrules (hope that is the correct way to describe it). I have purchased a Bill Ballen reel to match this rod which will hopefully come tomorrow. I will top it off with a cortland Sylk line DT5. Just cant say enough about how incredible this bamboo rod is. It comes alive in your hands. In a word its SWEEEEET!!!! Thanks again Jason for your time and patience in building this rod. Lets go fishing

    Congratulations Mac,
    Was the Maker Jason Klett?
    I have casted some of Jason's Rods and they are exceptional.
    I'm sure it will become your go to rod as you won't want to fish anything else.
    Enjoy your new rod and don't bite it or lay it in the water like allen

    That's it Ron slight correction on the spelling of his name and it's 2 piece 2 tip not 3 piece. Just had it on the lawn casting for a bit with my backup reel. Throwing some nice loops out to 40 ft. So far. Have to unlearn my fast action fly rod stroke

    As a maker and restorer of bamboo rods, I can share your excitement. Life is to short not to fish bamboo. Enjoy.

    Well, don't all the guys who belong to the hoity toity bamboo club say that those who don't, might as well be fishin' with a broomstick?

    Do you guys have a secret handshake, too?
