Announcement: A Bamboo Week for Atlantic Salmon on the Restigouche


February 23, 2011

This has been in the works for a little while now, but I wanted to make an announcement about an event later in the summer. I’ve been invited to host a “Bamboo Week” on the Restigouche River during the last week of July (24st-31st), in conjunction with the Restigouche River Lodge and the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum. As anyone familiar with salmon fishing knows, the Restigouche is one the premier rivers in the world and has attracted salmon fisherman of note for over a century. The lodge, which is located on the lower part of the river, possesses several miles of prime pools and has lots of great water. You’d be hard pressed to find a better place–or a better way–to spend a week this summer, and what’s more, a portion of the proceeds from the week will be donated to the Catskill Museum.

In addition to the fishing, guests will enjoy plenty of camaraderie and conversation about bamboo rods and their construction, performance, and history.  All anglers are strongly encouraged to bring their own bamboo of course and will also have opportunities to cast a few of my own rods as well.

More details can be found at the Restigouche River Lodge website, but feel free to contact me as well if you’re interested. Only a handful of openings will be available so the sooner the better.

One of the best parts of being a rodmaker is testing out new rod models. This past summer I put together a new 6' #4 design and was able to take the prototype on a trip to the Poconos.
