if you have never had the pleasure of landing a fish on bamboo, put it on your bucket list. a five weight rod can offer great bends on small fish and amazing fights on fish over 12 or so inches. if you would like to purchase one, give me a shout. can do a custom order depending on the situation
check out the guy in the photo. nice 18 or so inch yellastone cutt. puts enough of a bend in your rod to make think shell snap on some end. but they hold fish very well and cast like a champ. graphite and glass out, natural materials here for good.
