Default Buy an Oyster Bamboo from Buck!

Hey all

I will be filling in from time to time at Bill Oyster's bamboo rod shop and will be working this Saturday. So come on up and let me sell you a genuine Oyster bamboo fly rod or sign you up for one of his rod making classes. Seriously man, I need this job!

If you are up in Blue Ridge this coming Saturday, come on in to the shop and say howdy!

You freaked me out, Buck! My first thought was, "Why on earth would he ever sell his Oyster?????

Nope, not selling my Oyster! BTW, it is the only bamboo rod I own that my wife actually knows how much it costs as she paid for it!

Nope, will just be filling in on the weekends on occasion when they need help. But be sure to stop by while you are there and say hey to Bill, Shannen, and Riley, they would love to see you!

Funny you say that Buck. Now I know where you are going to be and I'll come over there and try to beat you up.

I used to pick up the$20 rods and reels at Walmart when my former wife was around and ooo and awe at them. I had a crazy fund and could bring home Abel, Sage, Tibor and Loomis Stuff. She never knew. She thought every fishing rod cost $20

Dang good idea

The fisherman now is one who defies society, who rips lips, who drains the pool, who takes no prisoners, who is not to be confused with the sissy with the creel and bamboo rod. Granted, he releases what he catches, but in some cases, he strips the quarry of its perilous soul before tossing it back in the water. What was once a trout – cold, hard, spotted and beautiful – becomes “number seven.”

Mr. Remoh, now don't you feel ashamed having been so deceitful?

If you have a crazy fund go visit Buck in Blue Ridge. Tell your significant other you couldn't afford a glass rod and you had to settle for a Boo Rod. I'm sure Buck can write you a receipt for $20

Hey gang,

I will be working at Bill's rod shop again tomorrow. Come on in and say hello if you are in Blue Ridge! We got some nice new Oyster Bamboo t-shirts that are all the rage in Paris right now.
