This 6'5" 3 weight Ramanauskas bamboo fly fishing rod is an incredibly efficient tool for casting small flies accurately around and under trees and bushes. A joy to cast, it is light, smooth, and surprisingly powerful when called upon. This small rod derives its unusual casting properties from the hands of master builder Bernard Ramanauskas, who has developed a special method for node stabilization in his cane. The polymerization of the lignin within the node increases strength without adding weight. This, coupled with a power-directing, hollow-built butt section, contributes to a bamboo rod taper that casts like no other.
Behold, the Scott SC 653-2 piece, 2 tip, 3 weight. AAA grade bamboo is hand flamed to medium silky-smooth, drop-dead gorgeous cognac color, and complemented with ULTRA lightweight Hariki handmade nickel-silver ferrules, and Spalted maple wood inserts with engraved nickel silver cap and ring hardware which are hand finished and blued to a deep grey-blue gun metal color. Flawless, clear translucent Silk wraps finished with a soft burgundy silk trim, matching gun metal blued SnakeBrand guides with select real agate stripping guides in nickel silver frames, and just the right touch of finish complete the this work of art. The 6’5” 3 weight Ramanauskas bamboo is just a spectacular custom bamboo fly rod that requires no explanation, only your name on it.
