Fall River Bamboo Fly Rod Update

From the Blog of Dry Flies & Fat Tires

It’s been awhile since I did an update about the traveling custom Bamboo fly rod from Fall River Flyrods, that we also partnered with Montana Fly Company and RIO to send around the country to 15 Outdoor Bloggers.

If you missed how this all happened, you can check out the details here and here.

The rod is gathering up memories and adding to the rods special brand of unique. Sometime this fall (once everyone has had a chance to catch some fish) I’ll be setting up a live webcast for anyone to tune in online, share more stories and watch me pick the lucky winner of the entire set up.

Until then, feel free to visit these great write ups:

    Today, next two days, both weekend days and a couple more next week. All the days I’ll be fishing it. Doing a meet and greet on Saturday and invited a bunch of fly rodders out to wave it around.

    Got skunked on the ponds today, but I expected that. I hate ponds. I fish rivers and creeks for smallies. Nothing else compares.

    Having a blast with this so far. Nice equipment indeed.

    Hey Rebecca- great write ups all. I did post another write up called “The Bamboo and I” if you’d like to share it.


    Thanks. It has been fun following its progress thus far. JT

    It’s been on one Hell of a journey! I only wish I could have fished half the water this thing has been on. By the time it is done I bet it has hooked into more gills and more species than any other bamboo rod out there. What a great test and I am proud to be part of it.
