Welcome to the World of Fly Fishing.
Why a Bamboo Rod?
While much of the equipment in fishing has become high tech traditional Bamboo Rods are experiencing a resurgence in the sport. Bamboo allows greater control of the fly and the line both in the air and on the water. Traditional bamboo rods are represent the high end of fly rods and run the gamut from workmanlike to works of art. The rod makers art is discernible in the taper, planing, and joining of the six precisely formed sections, the silk wrapping around the guides, the quality of components, and the action of the rod.
Why Fly Fish?
Why hunt trout rather than cast a tri-hook or a worm into the weeds for bass? It is a matter of taste of course. Fly fishing is a contemplative endeavor, which encourages an understanding of the natural world and his or her place in it. Just that and patience.
Fly fishing is a hunter’s sport. The accomplished fly fisher begins the day by determining what the fish are eating, observing what insects are above, on, or under the water and choosing a hand tied fly that mimics the food source. He or she must read the river for clues to where the fish will be hiding and feeding and must present the artificial fly to the fish as if it were a natural occurrence. The physical challenge of maintaining that illusion as the fly drifts with the current requires great skill and a subtle hand.
