    you forgot to take pictures of inside the shop, then you have to take pictures of his inventory.

    Or better than just a visit. Find out from him if his 2013 schedule has classes that coincide with your spring break, and go down there and build yourself a bamboo rod. Looks like the classes fill up quickly.

    Re: Oyster Bamboo Rods

    If you like them go for it. All that engraving on ferrules and reel seats does not make it stylish. It looks gaudy to me. I think simple elegant and understated is more appealing and inline with the way a traditional boo looks. The older H. L. Leonard,T&T and Hardy bamboos are elegant and stately. But that is just my opinion.

    Larry Donahe is your guy.

    Very elegant. And perhaps the greatest American builder today.

    How can you even claim that? The greatest American builder today? Last I checked there are a lot of great builders today who have been at it for much longer.

    Re: Oyster Bamboo Rods

    Yep Bob Taylor has been around for many years and builds simply elegant and wonderful casting fly rods some of the best tapers in the states or world for that matter .Zach Pryor of Pryor custom rods is another outstanding favorite he builds his rods from the ground up and does a tremendous job. Our very own Ron Frost builds superb fly rods as well and can be considered right up there..Jason Klett is anther fine builder well on his way produces beautiful casting tapers as well . Not only that he makes his own ferrules and guides pretty cool stuff..
