Interesting sleuthing on the vintage bamboo rod site

Post by Mike N »

Greg Reynolds has a great website documenting post WW-II vintage Orvis bamboo fly rods (I prefer mine 40 years earlier.) In any event, a collector sent Greg an Orvis fly rod with the owner’s signature inked on the bamboo, and Greg went to work documenting the original owner’s bio. I would love to see more research like this by the present-day owners of engraved reels; there has been some and it brings a reel to life.
