I spent a summer season angling with only a bamboo rod. I was residing in Colorado and was mainly angling high altitude lakes so a short six foot rod wasn't the ideal choice. However I never ever appeared to mind. I was having so much run battling fish on that particular little point that I never considerably assumed how great it would be to obtain an added 15 feet from an actors.
My life as a fisherman started with bamboo. Like most children in the South, I fished with a walking stick pole, a bobber, and also a worm attached to completion. Pretty far from the classic rods which have been used in the New England area and also Europe for over 200 years.
