Posts: 28I wanted to make all aware that Don Ward from Keystone Fly Rod Company has teamed up with guide Eric Stroup, and they are hosting a bamboo fly rod building class this summer.

The class runs from June 12 - 16, and all will be staying at Eric's new lodge overlooking the gorge of the Little Juniata River in Central Pennsylvania.

If you are interested, additional information can be found @ Don's page: http://keystoneflyrodcompany.com/

I have built some bamboo fly rods over the years, and to know that you will have one built in five days, plus stay in an incredible lodge and fish the Little J...well, it doesn't get too much better than that!

I've always wanted to do something like this! Unfortunately I live on the wrong side of the country.

Posts: 28I'm sorry to hear that, Gus, and it should be a great event. The fishing in the area is incredible, and the lodge will be a great place for everything.

Building a bamboo fly rod is so much fun, plus learning to do so in a hands-on event over a week with other people makes the experience that much better.

I'm looking forward to seeing how many are going to participate, and see if Don's class begins to turn into a yearly event.
