We have developed a truly unique bamboo rod with WhistlePig Rye Whiskey in Vermont. The bamboo is ‘toasted ‘ over a Rye whiskey barrel giving it unique character and the reel seat is crafted from the white oak barrel staves.
THE ULTIMATE BAMBOO ROD.
T&T Bamboo rods epitomize the finest characteristics of the rod makers art. Each rod requires an investment of over 50 hours of skilled handwork to complete Designed with a complex progressive taper that turns from a delicate tip-top to the distinctive T&T swelled butt, the 7’6" 5 five weight will deliver a smooth line loop for delicate presentations. Each rod is personally handcrafted by master craftsman Troy Jacques.
