There are few belongings in fly-fishing equipment that capture the essence of fly-fishing more than a bamboo fly rod. Even given today’s incredible graphite fly rods they still fall short in matching the essence and beauty of a well crafted bamboo fly rod.
Glen Brackett has been a long time acquaintance of Western Rivers Flyfisher. It started almost two decades ago when we began carrying RL Winston fly rods. At that time he and his Boo Boys worked for this Montana fly rod company. Since then they've branched out on their own to form Sweetgrass Rods, which we are now proud to carry as part of our fly rod mix in the fly shop.
Glen is a legendary bamboo rod maker. His fly rods coveted for their craftsmanship, artistry and incredible feel that makes a bamboo rod so personal and unique. Some feel they are to beautiful to fish, but its when fishing one that you truly come to understand what sets a bamboo rod apart from all other fly rods.
There are now a number of options you can choose from in Sweetgrass rods. The most popular are their affordable Mantra series of rods. The most coveted, however and still the more traditional rods they offer; there premium series of custom built bamboo fly rods.
Regardless of your preference Glen and the Boo Boys Sweetgrass Rods are esthetically beautiful, meticulously crafted and will give you a life time of fly-fishing memories from first to last cast. Check them out on-line or better yet stop in and feel one of these finely crafted rods for yourself.
