He is going to fish with a bamboo rod of his own making this season

A friend of mine, the engineer, has been busy. Actually, he has not been all that busy as all this began over a year ago, but he has made a lot of work.

Sure he still has a lot of work to do, but I'd state it as a fact, that he is going to fish with his brand new 7'2" 4 weight Driggs River when the greatest evening hatch of the summer arrives.

And, I'm not going to fish with my own made cane rod. Not this summer. (My progress is detailed on the last picture.)

and that's the state of my cane making project

I also have several unfinished projects lying around the house that have next summer written all over them....unfortunately none could catch me a fish.

Welcome to the dark side Olli. Bamboo fly rods are addictive!

Sweet looking rod. I'm curious though--is your friend's rod named for the Driggs river in Michigan?

Schupac,

I'm not sure, it is quite possible. The original taper is designed by Paul H. Young.

Love it! Can't really wait to start making my own 'boo rod :)
