I'm helping my mom sort an estate that was donated to the local senior center. In the pile (and I do mean pile) I found what I believe to be a bamboo fly rod with two different tip sections (different weights) The guy made his own poles that was obvious. I don't know if he made this one or it has just lost its decal. At any rate I am looking for advise on how to carefully clean the thing and how to judge if it is in good enough condition to use. Does anyone here travel in such circles or do you know of a good forum to seek advise. The pole is NOT FOR SALE NOR WILL IT BE. Any help or direction greatly appreciated. I'll be adding photos to this thread in the morning I want to use natural light.
