    I recently started a group dedicated to bamboo and it was met with so much interest that I asked Chris if this would be an appropriate category to add to the forum. Here's your answer!
    Thanks for the new sub-forum Chris!

    Cool Chris. I'm a newbie to both bamboo and glass but Bitterroot won't fish with me if I don't have some glass or bamboo in my hand.

    Only thing I use bamboo for is for rolling sushi. So this will probably be my only post here.

    Consider yourselves lucky.

    'Huge' enclave of 'Boo' enthusiasts here in Southern Oregon; darned near a 'cult' thing. Looking forward to reading the posting on glass rods; I'd love to get my hands on some "S-Glass" sticks. Only one left, but I'd drop the dime in a heart beat to get a few of those rods back in the 'quiver.'

    Nice stick Derek! Have you had a chance to fish it much? I've been mainly fishing glass & boo for the last 18 months & using the graphite less & less. Looking forward to this new sub forum!

    Yeah, I've fished the Champion several times, it's a great rod and honestly, perfect for slowing down my casts. A good teaching tool and fun to use.

    Just thought I'd post this one up of one of my old Fenwicks in action. Off a little stream I know that's never fished, but gets a nice run of pinks. :)
