Welcome to the first post of the Bamboo Bend Project blog. Glad you’re here.
The Bamboo Bend Project is an annual eight day event that occurs on the banks of the East Branch of the fabled AuSable River. Wounded or injured military members or veterans hand build a high quality bamboo fly rod assisted by master rod makers. At the end of the program, each participant takes home the completed bamboo fly rod that they built. They also receive a top end reel, premium fly line, local flies and custom made, heirloom quality, wooden fly box. There are also numerous opportunities for our warriors to fly fish with professional guides from both drift boats and AuSable river long boats, in addition to the spectacular wade fishing available on the local rivers and streams.
This event is offered at NO COST to the veteran. All donations are 100$ tax deductible. Organizational overhead expenses are well below 1%.
Again, thanks for showing up and reading. Check back often for more entries.
