My life as a fisherman started out with bamboo. Like the majority of youngsters in the South, I fished with a walking stick pole, a bobber, as well as a worm connected to the end. Pretty far from the classic rods which have actually been utilized in the New England area as well as Europe for over 200 years.
One of my favorite features of a bamboo pole is that you feel so considerably a lot more linked to the fish. You could really feel the fight right down in the deal with. Every run and every head shake are sent clearly to the fibers. It really feels even more like an expansion of your arm compared to a fly rod. I could understand why so numerous bamboo rod fishers describe it as alive. This ended up being more pronounced when I took my 9 feet 5wt graphite rod. It's a slower activity pole, yet male did I feel detached from that broomstick!
