I was up and running @ 5 am on Monday, on the water by 6:30. This was the shake-down voyage for bamboo resto-rod (not really restored, but refurbished with new components and finish...refurbo-rod?). Semantics aside, I had a ball getting used to the rythyms of a bamboo rod- distinct and more relaxed than my point-and-shoot graphites. Lots of rise-rings and a few 'leapers' all morning, alas I only hooked one willing rainbow of about 8"...but a ton of fun using a rod nearly 65 years old brought back to life, and in it's 3rd generation of the family!
