Everyone needs at least one $500 swim bait in their arsenal, along with a $5000 rig to sling it on.
Fine Bamboo Oyster Rods – $4,600
These rods are handcrafted and cut specially from a piece of bamboo upon request. You cannot just pick one up. You have to order it and wait while it is created from scratch. The handle is engraved and even comes with the option of a 24-carat gold inlay – though this costs so much extra that the company doesn’t even offer the price unless you place a deposit on a rod and then request a price for the gold inlay. This rod starts at $4,600 and goes up with each personalized detail you request.
