A while back my grandfather gave me a 6' 2/3 weight bamboo flyrod that had belonged to my late uncle. I've put off using it until I could get the perfect reel for it. Well, today I got impatient, I've been dying to fish it, so I took the White River reel from my TFO, mounted it up and set out for Suwanee Creek. The bamboo had a totally different feel from my TFO, but it cast really well once I got used to the stiffness. I think if I put a 3 or 4 weight line on it it'll cast like a dream. I can't wait to fish it again, but for now, I'm back to searching for a reel.
|Damn fine 'gill! They weren't biting too well the day I tried out the bamboo rod, but this guy decided to take a brown woolly bugger.|
|It is a beautiful rod, but I still need to find a good reel to complement it.|
|I still need to work on the photo skills, but the moss makes a great backdrop!|
