AJ Thramer Versus Wayne Maca

Beverhead Bamboo Rod By Wayne Maca
Beverhead Hollow Built versus AJ Thramer Hollow Built. Uncle Wong and I took turns to test cast the rod and caught fish with it. Uncle Wong couldn’t bear to part with it. I was so impressed by its casting quality, I thought I was cast a graphite. Kuan was patiently waiting and in his eyes I could sense him thinking, “Now I’ve really got you guys!”.

Casting both the AJ Thramer and the Wayne Maca, I must admit, the Beaverhead won the casting part hands down. Without a doubt.

Uncle Wong broke his South Bend after catching a peacock bass. Ady had his fair share of fishes, but today, he missed the big ones.

I saw 6 sebaraus at the rapids. But today, the valve technician was fast asleep and the river wouldn’t run for us. The sebaraus just played at the end of the cement blocks, teasing me as it chased the fly I casted to them. Only stopping when it swam alongside it. Then ignoring the fly altogether.

Breakfast as usual. Uncle Wong had his usual kopi-O and warm water. Noodles also on Uncle Wong.

My AJ Thramer took a back seat while we tried and admire the Beaverhead Bamboo, also a Hollow Built.

First cast and this greedy peacock bass hit the fly.

and refuse to give it up for me to try even after prolonged begging by me.
I casted the rod too and wouldn't want to give it back to Kuan.
Man................ a bamboo rod that casted like graphite.

Uncle Wong caught peacock basses again and again with the Beaverhead.

Nice rod and reel

Again. Just as he was reluctantly going to let me have a go at the Beaverhead Rod
