I just returned from the annual Henry's Fork bamboo rod builder's gathering held at the Henry's Fork in Idaho. As usual, I met a lot of nice people and saw a lot of great rods. One of the people I met was Yvon Chouinard. He is very passionate about fly fishing and seems to be a great ambassador for the sport.
Here is a picture of the Henry's Fork river. I got to wake up to this view every day and go to bed with it. I got to fish to rising fish on the last day there and what an experience.
Here is a rod that I acquired during the gathering. Its a 7'9" 5 weight made by Doug Daniels. I think it might be the easiest casting rod that I have ever cast.
