    I think might have a couple kicking around somewhere...not positive they are actually fly rods...If I remember correctly they just looked like bamboo sticks to me ...but they were aquired with a bunch of other fishing poles..I'll post a picture...if I can find 'em...

    Most Southbend bamboo are good rods. How long is it and does it have any numbers on it?

    I still use an old Winchester dry fly rod to this day. Great rod.

    I collect older fishing poles,lures,paper, and reels I only started in 2001 but have acummulated much too much stuff.I'm quite sure I have some bamboo rods and some bamboo rods built for trolling as is evident by the types of reels affixed that look kinda like fly reels if your interested?

    I've built several graphite fly rods that I use today. Back when I started building fly rods, I bought an old bamboo rod and rebuilt it. I tried fishing with it but it was a real "dog" compared to a graphite rod, which you can fish with all day.

    If you're looking for one to fish with, I'd like to suggest you look for a Tonkin cane rod. There are several people that custom make them starting with splitting the bamboo and using really nice nickle-silver ferrules, reel seats and winding checks. They are getting a pretty penny for them, though, but they ARE beautiful fly rods.

    Anyway, my old one is hanging around here somewhere, if you're interested.

    Thanks Bob, I just put the notice up because I fix up old ones and sell or trade them. I was building new ones for a while and have plenty of bamboo rods to fish with.

    That's an art. I've seen and handled some gorgeous cane rods that are too nice to fish. Way beyond my rod building abilities. I've built several graphite fly rods and pretty much only use them.

    I'd really like to see some photos of the new ones that you've built. The WWII era rebuilt one's that I've done and seen are alright but, for me, they fish like dogs.

    Re: Bamboo Fly Rods

    I have two one I just got from my friends father for free including a reel and another I got in California in a wooden box (japan) for ten dollars the one in the box has 5 different tips and both the butt of them are reversable so it can be a spinning rod and a fly rod depending on the reel location on the handle. I love them both

    I have always heard that the old ones were worth a bundle.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    i was given an old bamboo fly rod years ago. i was offered $6,000.00. I declined. when i had it appraised, i was told it was made in the 1860's or 1870's, and was worth way more than i was originally offered. it is in great shape and actually functional. if that interests you. send me a response and maybe we can do some dealin'....
