    Recent Bamaboo Finds

    Picked up 3 bamboo rods in the last couple of weeks

    A rare Heddon #10 dry fly rod pre ferrule designation system circa 1935-39 8ft 3 piece 2 tip #5 pics on bottom

    A New DR Stone maxwell era Leonard 37H taper rod with great antiquing work done on the ferrules and reel handle. 7ft 2 piece 2 tip # 4 pics in the middle

    Another new dennis stone rod built on his own custom taper with a light flaming done to the 7 1/2 ft 2 piece 2 tip for a # 3/4 line.ics on top. Now all we need are some rising trout

    Very nice collectibles.

    I imagine you were able to score all three for less than 500 or so?

    I just sent in my deposit for another James Reid bamboo Spey. I had to replace the Riverwatch I sold.

    New DR stone rods retail for 1095.00 for a hex and 1195.00 for a hollow built. I paid a good deal less then that. The heddon I am having assessed as to actual value.

    Re: Recent Bamaboo Finds

    I was very pleased to see the bamboo rods.....when I read the title, I thought it may have to do with the POTUS and Halloween....

    I really like the look of the rod in the first three pics......

    Beetle just wanted to know how much of your money he wasn't getting this year, through gubberment handouts.

    The gale creek taper. Haven't received it yet but I love the looks of the rod and really want a 3 weight. Most of my rods are 5 weights. A 3/4 is ideal for the poconos when you plan on fishing dries

    He was sitting at two years when I placed my order. Deposit is only required a year out
