C.L. Crumbliss Bamboo 7′ 3wt 2pc 2.7oz (32-049)
This rod was made from my own taper and is a semi-parabolic, medium to medium slow taper hex build that is perfect for light line and delicate presentations. I have built several versions of this rod and enjoy fishing my personal rod in places where a delicate presentation is important as the softer action and fine tip allow great finesse in casting and playing fish. You can read my bamboo rod making design philosophy on the “Bamboo” page of my site.
This rod features a nearly straight grip (slight swell towards the tip) and continuous cork reel seat turned from 1/2″ flor grade cork rings. The reel seat hardware is a pocketed butt cap and sliding band from RLee in Idaho. Snake Brand guides and a low profile black stripper are wrapped in yli silk thread. The rod has size 12 CSE truncated ferrules and the female ferrule has a full overwrap of silk.
This rod will ship (free in the US) in a sewn sleeve in a labeled aluminum tube. The tube will be securely boxed for safe shipment and fully insured.
This handcrafted bamboo rod is offered for sale for $750.
