Chris's new bamboo rod by Walter
Babbs is shown in the pictures. I'm not
sure if it's Tonkin cane from China, or
Madake from Japan. I'm making fun of
cane rods by don't laugh because If
your rod is made of graphite, it came
from Toray Industries in Japan. Pac
Bay from China most likely made it's
metal component parts. American fly
rods? You better do some checking.my
friends. America is good at marketing
gimmicks. .
