Fish the classics
So Roper imprudently dropped a hint that he was interested in buying a bamboo rod. Greg Armstrong, Ron Raport and I assembled an arsenal of seven to nine foot bamboo fly rods for him to try. Mostly 5 and 6 weights. Grangers and Phillipsons with a Sharpes and Winston and Carlin and Thomas thrown in for good measure.
Roper's verdict was that he liked the 7'6" 5 weights the best. A good time was had by all and there may be a follow up bamboo trip to Roper's Oroville place next spring.
