Went to the Bamboo show at Camp Sherman yesterday, and MAN, there were some absolutely AMAZING rods there! Not only new ones, but a bunch of restored ones as well. Got a chance to cast a nice little Granger Victory, and it just KILLS me that I didn't buy it then (the guy was only wanting $400 for it). I think next year I'm going to have to make it a point of not walking away from there empty handed. Oh, and a guy there took a picture of me casting the Granger and said he's going to use me in one of his paintings. Pretty Cool! I will definitely be back there next year!

P.S. Also caught a few nice sized cutthroat on a "secret" stretch of river that Clyde and I found. And no, I won't tell you where it is
