There once was an angler called John
Whose favorite cry was "Fish On!"
When his bamboo he cast,
To his flies as they passed,
The fish said, "Hey, tied by the Don."

Thanks for the hospitality, JAD.

Yes he is. I thought you two should get together. John may be out of town for a while, but I am sure you'll get an enthusiastic response when he gets back. One of his friends makes bamboo rods also.

At the moment I have three in my collection all of which can cover tha gammut of small to mid sized trout streams. Although I have fished my 7'6" on the West Branch it does not have quite enough length to control the line on the water as well as I'd like. Which when you are able to cast 55-60' with relative ease you need all of the mending ability you can get.

Hi All, I'm the proud owner of an early, and I mean early, Walt Carpenter creation that he custom made for me. Anyone hear from him lately?

All of my rods are Dietrich Bros. Dream Catchers. However I have fished several Sweetwater's (George Mauer), a Young Parabolic, a Leonard 50, and a few Paynes the model of which I can't recall.
It is amazing what a skilled builder can do. I have fished bamboo with characteristics of graphite (except for the weight).

Hello all

There once was an angler called Louis
Whose favorite cry was 1 we have them surrounded.
2 Hes a mean fish -- John
3 My waders are leaking again
4 Pass the chicken please
When the fly that he cast,disappeared at last
The fish said-- what happened to the long line release.

Best that I can do.

I like fish en with the best, and I did.

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cock’s wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

John, that's four favorite cries. But you accurately summarized my initial overconfidence, my ire at that fish that would rise to everything except my fly, my damp socks, and my healthy appetite. Also thanks for documenting the fact that I can land a fish. Every now and then, that is. Did the photo come out?
