As a fisherman and fly tier, the facination of bamboo rods became an affliction! Countless years of investing every spare $$$ from my humble viewpoint, building up tools, equiptment and hand making the tools of the trade, and learning the trade. The dream from the Origins of Angling Traditions, the honor of creating Handcrafted Splitcane-Bamboo Fishing Rods came true!
Tonkin Split-Cane Bamboo or "Arundinaria amabilis"-"The Lovely Reed". Handcrafted by Rodsmiths, each Clum goes through preparational phases of spliting, roughing, heat treating, tapering, laminating, sanding, varnish, installing hardware and the final inspuction.
Bamboo fly rods, going back to the 1920's in China, are reawakening within the fly fishing community for obvious reasons. The distinction and tradition of Heirloom quality craftsmanship is for a lifetime and passes to the next generation!
