I'll be there early if anyone wants to cast a bamboo rod before fly tying. I'm always looking for feedback. I'll have 3 - 5wt rods. Two of which are the same "crisp" taper and one that has a slow action taper (it should have been fast action) I have two different 5 wt lines to try out as well and Orvis Hydros HD and Royal Wulff Bamboo Special. Unfortunately I only have one reel


It doesn't matter what kind of caster you. I'm curious how difficult or easy they are to cast for people of all abilities. I'm so-so caster myself and it takes 20 or so minutes of casting before I'm casting a bit better.

Thanks for bringing your rods out, Ray. 


I am impressed with your work.  All three rods cast well, though I preferred the 2 slower action rods.
