Dave and I headed out to the Fall River today. As you can see from the pictures – we have had just a tad bit of snow. Since I finished the rod in mid- January today was the first day we were able to get on the water. And at approximately 11:30, Friday, February 10th – I hooked and land my first fish a 12 inch rainbow on my personal crafted bamboo rod! It was a joy to build this rod and a hoot to get that first fish. Dave offers Bamboo Rod Building classes – you won’t be disappointed in building your own and then fishing it.
The hike to my favorite spot on the fall river!
In the net – whew! This was a fish I didn’t want to lose!
Had to have a classic grip and grin shot of my first fish – and it was a rainbow!
Thanks Dave for all you guidance in building my rod – nothing like having my own built bamboo fly rod.
