Based on the amount of flex that those rods have, it must take a while to get used to casting them.

Just a matter of letting it happen. I fished bamboo extensively as a kid in the late 60's with my father's 9' 6 wt South Bend. Got away from them for a lot of years, but never went to the fast action graphite rods as the just were not as enjoyable as fishing a slower action rod like a full flex Orvis Supergine. Wyatt Deitrich built me a 8' 4 wt last June and it was like meeting an old friend. Have not touched another rod since.

Wyatt and i are trying to get together this summer to help me build a 6' 4 wt. I'm hoping that rod building may be something I will pursue when I retire next year. Looking forward to surprising my fishing buddies with their own rod at Christmas time.

If fishing is like religion, then fly-fishing is high church.
