Powerful #4 weight rod. I normally overline it with a #5 weight fly line so that I can cast the bigger, heavier flies better.

Uncle Wong is the first Singaporean to make a bamboo fly rod right here in Singapore. Until now, perhaps he is the One-And-Only bamboo fly rod maker in Singapore. CY will be the other bamboo fly rod maker soon.
