Bamboo rods...old time , old skool relics to some. For me it's just another level of enjoyment to take esox on. I'll be out this week trying to put ole Esox Niger on the wood. I will be tossin a 6-7wt 3 piece south bend rod. Top that with a old click and pawl and some feathered flies gramp's would have tossed it's on. Here is a pic from last years vintage venture.....Enjoy and tight Lines!!!
