Fishing bamboo is a thrill that everyone should experience. We'd like for you to give it a try. Here's our list of why you'll love fishing a Headwaters Bamboo rod.
The parabolic flex resulting in a hinge action will turn your casts into powerful and precise presentations.
Casting bamboo will help you become a better angler.
Feel that smooth action when you flick your wrist to cast? That's the beauty of fishing bamboo.
Each Headwaters Bamboo is hand split and hand planed to micro tolerances.
From the tip to the butt section each bamboo rod is made up of six perfectly shaped tapered triangular strips glued and bundled to form a hexagonal rod, the backbone of a quality fishing instrument.
Come for the fishing. Stay for the aesthetic.
The glistening spar varnish. The elegant agate guide. The windings wrapped uniformly. The precision reelseats. The expertly formed Portuguese cork grips. All come together in a rod that looks as good as it fishes.
Fine fit and finish for a rod that lasts a lifetime--or more!
We're all enamored with this planet earth. What can you do to protect our home?
Fish bamboo, of course! Bamboo is pretty unique in how it grows, how often it can be harvested, and how it helps the earth breathe.
When you fish a Headwaters Bamboo rod you are helping to keep this planet a livable place for us all.
Contemporary bamboo rods going for upwards of $3,000 and having to painfully wait a year or more for the rod? Crazy, but it doesn't have to be that way.
At Headwaters Bamboo our rods are reasonably priced at six times less expensive! And a reasonable wait time. Most rods ship same or next day. If we are out of stock, the wait is typically no more than a month.
The slow cadence of a bamboo rod will help you commune with your surroundings.
The water. The bugs. The rocks and trees and soil. Soak it in. Breathe. Enjoy. Bamboo will do that for you.
We are, in a phrase, tackling the uncommon. Does that speak to you as a fly angler?
