Custom Bamboo Rod - 2008
Jul 31st, 2008, 12:23pm
 
As most of you know, this years featured auction item at our club fundraiser in May was a custom bamboo made for us by St. Clair & Hynes
 
The rod was finished this week and delivered to it's proud owner, Jonathan Fuhrer:
 

 
 
 
This is the inscription on the rod. The polished brass cap for the aluminum tube also has his initials and Santa Barbara Flyfishers 2008
 

 
 
 
This is the rod makers signature.
 

 
The rod is a 7 ft 4 wt 2/2 and it feels as good as it looks!
 
 
 
Congradulations to Jonathan and thanks to Mike St. Clair for creating this masterpiece for us.

That sure is a beauty!!!  Hope we hear some feedback about its use on the water by its new owner soon.

What a great piece of art.  To be able to blend all those components together into a fishing tool is an incredible talent.  That's one lucky guy.  Pictures would be nice!
