    I have had my Santiam 7′ Med action for about four years. It has proven to be quite the value and a real “pride” to own. Over the years, I have spoofed many of my Fly Fishing buddies by convincing them I own a beautiful $2,000 classic Bamboo Fly Rod. It does make them take a very close look. The quality components feel great in my hand. I live on a small lake on Whidbey Island in Washington and have given a sore lip to many 11-15″ Rainbows with this cool little rod. I fish from an old canoe and it is the perfect size for canoe fishing with my “Goldendoodle” on board.

    It did fail my test of stepping on it with the full weight of my 215 pound body. I sent my busted rod back to Headwaters and their repair service is as good as their rods. A good bang for your buck.

    I thought you might enjoy seeing the results of our Senior guides trip to Kelly Creek last week. The weather was great, and so was the fishing! My new Santiam FAR exceeded my expectations, and was responsible for the fish of the trip, a 19-inch cutt on a hopper.

    Fishing with a partridge and green soft hackle, it was almost a fish a cast! Bamboo is perfect for this fly! Thanks so much for a superior rod-it’s perfect for this type of fishing!

    Last winter (2013-2014) was so bad in Illinois, I rewarded myself with a Headwaters Rogue Deluxe 7’6″, medium fast 5wt, bamboo fly rod. 3 days after ordering there was a bamboo rod on my doorstep. As soon as the weather broke I discovered that there were fish in my bamboo rod. All that I had heard about bamboo rods was true and then some! Unique feel, gorgeous design, smooth performance, and Headwaters’ fantastic price.

    I purchased the Metolius a few years ago planning to use it when I retired. Last year I began to use it but it broke at the bottom ferrule.

    Headwaters responded quickly and it was repaired with minimum cost and expeditiously. I used it for a couple of trips last year and it was a delight to cast. It will be my favorite small stream/river rod from now on. It just feels right.

    I purchased my Headwaters Bamboo Deluxe Rogue 7’6″ 5 Wt. medium fast action last year. The company, in particular, David Rogers, was easy to work with and assisted me in making my decision about the rod. He suggested that I get a medium fast rod since I had never fished with a bamboo rod and agreed with my assumption that the transition would be easier from a graphite rod. I have been extremely pleased with the rod and have felt fortunate to bask in the compliments from fly fishing friends who build bamboo rods. After extremely close inspection and making several casts they were as pleased and impressed with the rod as am I.

    The bamboo rod took some getting used to since it is much slower to load and cast that graphite. It is also heavier. I already have 3 and 4 weight graphite rods and wanted a shorter rod to use on some of the narrower streams I get an opportunity to fish in the Driftless area in Wisconsin and smaller streams in Michigan and it has served me well on small streams but I also used it to land a lot of fish last summer on the Norfork River in Arkansas. Excellent value as new bamboo rods made in the US are often very expensive.

    I just purchased a Headwaters Metolius fly rod, it’s a very elegant looking bamboo rod, the guides, ferrules, reel seat all appear to be quality, tried for the first time last night, what a beautiful casting dry fly rod, I’m using a DT5F line and a 12′ leader, real good caddis hatch, caught and released 2 healthy browns and 2 rainbows, what a blast on that 7.5′ light bamboo fly rod.

    I own two Deluxe Headwaters bamboo rods, a 4 wt. purchased in 2010 and a 5 wt. purchased in 2015. Both have performed extremely well and are a joy to cast, especially when roll casting. Full disclosure, I have experienced a few minor issues with both rods, involving poorly glued ferrules, reel seat bottom cap and guides which a friend who makes bamboo rods easily repaired. I have fished both rods extensively on many Michigan trout streams and they have held up well. A good test came this spring when a wild 22″ Pere Marquette brown rose to a dry fly in strong current. The 5 wt. handled it superbly with enough backbone to steer the fish out of a log jam and into the net.

    If you haven’t tried one yet, what are you waiting for? I’m not a bit sorry I got one. Fishes like a dream & reminds me of one I had in the late 50s.

    I absolutely love my Deluxe 7’6″ Rogue Medium Fast action rod in a 5wt. I always wanted to fish a bamboo rod but never wanted to fork over big dough in order to do it. I paired it with an Orvis C.F.O. III carrying an Orvis Hydros Dual Taper Trout line in a 5wt. It’s lovely.
