Bamboo Fly Rods
Renaissance Rods does not keep a bunch of generic blanks in the shop for builds. First you decide on the taper, line weight, components and color scheme. Once all the parameters are chosen, then your rod is started. If you don't have a particular rod in mind we will work with you to find a rod that will be a direct reflection of you and your fishing style.
For those of you new to Bamboo rods. They are suprisingly strong. There is no reason to treat Bamboo rods as a fragile wisp of a rod. No need to worry about a little dent or ding, on the blank, eventually breaking the rod as compared to graphite.
One of my personal favorites is a 7', 3-4 weight. She can drop a dry fly right on the mark or if need be chuck a nymph right into that seam. This model has caught 4" Golden Trout in high mountain meadows and 18" Rainbows in fast moving free stone waters with a delicate touch and plenty of backbone.
