Here is a pipe only a dyed in the wool hardcore bamboo fly fishing fanatic would even know who the maker is and not because of the pipe but because of his beautiful bamboo fly rods.

I call this pipe my Poker Chip Stack, the briar is left over from reel seat material, the nickel silver accents left over from hardware for the rods and he even went to the trouble of using his 60 degree cutter to glue in leftover bamboo strips 120 degrees apart to emulate a hexagon, the amateur pipe maker is German rod maker, artist and fly fishing author Rolf Baginski.

He generally makes enough pipes to cover the fly fishing shows he will attend and it took 2 years and 4 shows before I could nab this one, smoking some Condor Long Cut and keeping it smokey!

As an avid fly fisherman, I can really appreciate that pipe! Very nice. I have a few of Steve Kiley's bamboo rods. I used to field test them for him back in the day. I wonder if he might have some leftovers from his shop...... Hmmm...........

Keep it smoky Banjo!

While I'm not a fly fisher (but will be one someday) I love that pipe. Including and especially all the custom features you mention Mr. Banjo.

Keep it smokey indeed!

Cool


Cheers,

RR
