The Magic of Bamboo Flyrods
Bamboo was once the material of choice for flyrods - longrods. The move to graphic was good but the elegance is still there.
When we were kids all we ever fished with were bamboo flyrods. Now you can find them for thousands of dollars - thousands. We looked on Amazon and picked a few things that might be of interest to you - including two rods for under $1,000 that might be the next thing you might just have to have. There's also a great book about how they're made that is great to read even if you have no intention of getting one. You can find old used one in need of repair around on eBay sometimes, too.
