Headwaters Bamboo has been making classic fly fishing equipment since 2002. From bamboo fishing rods to classic fly reels, lines, and other accessories, our mission is to provide modern classic gear at an exceptional price and quality to outfit memorable fly angling excursions. Welcome! Look around and let us know if we can help you create new memories fishing classic bamboo.
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!
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.
