Scott Grady Rod Sweepstakes Package IS BACK!!!!!!


This year’s Bamboo Rod Sweepstakes is a complete ready to go fly fishing package.  Scott Grady is donating a beautiful hand-made Tonkin split cane bamboo fly rod and metal tube to support our fundraising efforts. This year’s fly rod is patterned after a Paul Young Driggs River taper.  The Driggs River is a small, brushy stream in the Michigan UP making this 7′ 2″, 2-piece, 4wt design ideal for Wisconsin trout streams.  The rod is blonde cane with a muldara reel seat.  It is wrapped in red with a red agate stripper guide.  The rod will come in a sock and metal tube and is paired with an Orvis Battenkill ll reel including fly line, leader, tippet and a fly box filled with flies. The total value of this package is over $1,600 dollars. Ticket Sales will be online and will kick off as part of our Annual Cabin Fever Day Fundraiser on January 20th at Bubolz Nature Preserve


Come to Cabin Fever Day and see the rod you can win!!!!  As with all Scott Gady rods, this will be a true masterpiece…..

Interested in talking to Scott about your next bamboo rod, Call or email Scott at (920) 252-0300 or swgrady.cane@gmail.com
