What’s behind your bamboo fly rod?

 Ever wonder what goes on in the making of your bamboo fly rod?  Alchemy?  Chemistry?  Physics?  How about precision in process?  

Yeah, that’s got a nice ring to it. A built-for-the-purpose shop. Precision machines to make the machines that make the bamboo fly rods.  A Hardinge Super Precision Lathe. A new Bridgeport Vertical Mill by Hardinge.  Set Tru lathe chucks for ferruling bamboo fly rods.

Fishing, especially with bamboo fly rods, is serious business – especially when you consider how little fishing time most of us enjoy. That’s why I fish my own high performance, hollowbuilt bamboo fly rods – I love bamboo, but also want a rod high-performing enough to handle almost any conditions.
