RL Nunley Bamboo Fly Rod

Saw some Nunley rods on Facebook and on his website. Again, the rods are very impressive, but out of range for my pockets, as usual. Bought his book “The Snake Rod” from Amazon and read about Bob’s adventures and accidents. Then by a stroke of luck saw this rod which was the same one Bob had showed on his Facebook at an affordable price. I grabbed it.

McKellip Nyukoned

McKellip rod nyukoned by two small temensises. This rod is power packed. It could out cast the Brooks’ Payne 100 Taper. CY haven’t got the chance to cast it yet. But I think he’s going to like it.

Mark McKellip Bamboo Fly Rod

Okay, I have to stop blaming CY, Uncle Wong and others when I acquire a bamboo fly rod. This one I will put the blame on myself. The pictures I saw on the Classic Fly Rod Forum was too irresistable. The one of a kind one piece handle and reel seat just meant that I have to get one to try.

Doug Borer Mortised Grip Fly Rod

Blame it on Poison CY and Jeff Hatton. The Gnome Factory has been turning out stunning fly rods and CY had been acquiring them. Uncle Wong and I had been casting and fishing these Mortised Handle rods from The Gnome. They were too expensive for me. Found out that Doug Borer is also making them and I could afford one. Bought this Mortised Grip Bamboo Fly Rod for my son Yong Zhi.

Hopefully, if the weather permits, I can go try it out on the temensis tomorrow.

The Ugly Fly Does It Again

The Ugly Fly does it again. A fish species which is quite difficult to catch on fly. A marble goby.
