Discover the Allure of Bamboo

We designed the Favorite Series Rods to provide an affordable bamboo rod for fly anglers. If you’ve ever wanted to fish bamboo, but were stymied by the high cost of bamboo or concerned about the quality of a used rod, this is your opportunity to be gently introduced to bamboo.

These genuine Tonkin bamboo blanks are fitted with a double locking nut downlocking nickel-plated reel seat, burl insert, cigar cork grip, and espresso brown agate stripping guide. The guides are wrapped in chestnut windings, tipped in gold. Comes with a single tip section for maximum value (bamboo traditionally ships with two tip as do our other series rods).

The Favorite Series rods have the standard lifetime warranty for the original owner and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

    The attached picture was taken back in October, it was the first trout I have ever caught on bamboo, with my new Headwaters Favorite Series rod. It truly is a wonderful casting instrument. The fish was caught in Yellow Creek Indiana County, Pennsylvania using a #14 bead head prince nymph.

    This past weekend I participated in a tournament on the San Juan River via the Texas Hole Charities benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project. Day two we all were handed a box five flies and a bamboo rod, the 7’6″ Field Grade. By the end of the day I was able to do everything I wanted with it and quickly became very impressed.

    Finally, not knowing the circumstances behind your involvement with the event, allow me to personally thank you for 1) manufacturing a very good rod, and 2) more importantly for your part in making this event successful for our wounded warriors.
