Classic Reel Sale - Headwaters Bamboo Rod Co.
David Rogers, purveyor of fine bamboo fly rods, from the Headwaters Bamboo Rod Company sent us a note today that announced a major reduction in the price of his 2007 Classic Series fly reels. These artistic examples of the fly reel are now priced at only $199.
Couple this reel with one of Headwater's very affordable bamboo rods and you will have a set up that will most likely make you the envy of your fellow graphite chucking anglers. Tweed jacket not included.
"Each reel is meticulously crafted of the highest quality aircraft-grade aluminum. The jewel-like materials and workmanship of this timeless fly reel complement any bamboo fly rod. The graceful serpentine “S” handle provides smooth operation and a classic look in the tradition of Vom Hofe fly reels from the turn of the 20th century. Simple click and pawl action."
Update: Mr. Rogers posted a comment:
Thanks for the hat tip, but frankly, it's not a sale. We've experienced lower cost with higher volume and as such we're passing on the saving to our customers.Also, stay tuned as we are revamping our entire bamboo rod product line and should have an announcement in 2-3 weeks.
