Just realized this was in the flyfishing forum. The first 12 years I flyfished (started when I was about 7) I fished exclusively with bamboo rods. In the late seventies I got my first graphite and then slowly got away from bamboo. I fish mostly dries and just developed more of a like for modern rods, although I still take a bamboo once in a while.
I recently sold my last 2 "good ones" - a Victor Granger (7.5') and Edwards (8') - had guys that wanted them for years and I haven't used them in years. The only bamboo fly rod I have left is my original 7.5" Weber - it was my first fly rod and could never sell that. As mentioned above I have a 7' Edwards bamboo spinning rod that I have been using quit a bit the last several years. I find myself reaching for that rod more than any other of my spinning rods the past couple of years. For years I never touched it, but I really enjoy the nostalgia it invokes when I use it. It is a light action rod and a blast to catch trout and bass on.
