Since I can't attend the clave tomorrow, I thought I would share a recent estate sale find. It's a Foster Bros bamboo rod, 2 piece with 1 tip. It's a whopping 9.5 feet. I haven't been able to find much information, even from Clark's, other than that Foster Bros were an English rod and reel maker, and that the rod was probably made in the 20's or 30's. Haven't gotten a chance to line it yet, but it feels like a 4 or 5 wt.
