Bamboo fly rods produce a smooth, fluid backcast which provides the rod its own ‘damping’ effect at the end of the backcast. The forward cast accelerates the line throw through the air with the same ‘damping’ effect at the beginning of the cast, and then again at the end of the cast as the fly caster lays the line out over the target water, generally with smooth, precise placement. Synthetic rod blanks can produce a somewhat similar powerful backcast and forward cast, but they lack the subtle ‘damping’ effect consistently produced by the bamboo rod in the hands of a skilled caster.

How to Choose a Bamboo Fly Rod

The first question that needs to be asked when looking for a bamboo fly rod is, how much are you willing to spend? The answer to this question define your search. A vintage rod by a, crafted by a famous bamboo fly rod maker, can cost as much as a car. When compared to the mass produced overseas model might cost less than a high-end graphite rod.

Does the name or brand on the rod matter? Some fisherman have always dreamed of owning a Winston or an Orvis cane rod. Or maybe you crave a William Oyster or Rolf Baginski. Perhaps there’s a local bamboo fly rod builder nearby who isn’t as well-known, but you like the idea of buying local. There are basically three kinds of bamboo-rod makers: traditional bamboo rod shops, Winston, Orvis, Thomas & Thomas, Hardy, custom makers, and offshore companies who produce less-expensive cane rods overseas.

How will you use it? And What Will You Fish For? There are so many different lengths, actions, and designs available that you’ll need to do some research, talking to the rod maker or manufacturer in order to find which fly rod is right for the body of water you are fishing.

Will you use it for all kinds of fishing or just dry flies? You can’t just say, medium-action six-weight fly rod, because there may be five different models that fit that description. Most custom bamboo craftsmen make rods with very specific, often quirky actions, so you’ll need to cast several rods to determine which is right for your needs.
