Tuesday Bamboo Rod Building Class

There is nothing that puts a smile on a rod makers face faster than the happy little sound of a sharp plane iron zipping across a section of bamboo!   Plane, plane, plane!!  Both Gene and Wayne enjoyed the day, amazed at the tiny strips  needed to glue up into their tip sections.

Planing bamboo strips into tip strips

By late afternoon, Gene and Wayne were close to being done with the hard part of the job, when it comes to building  a hand planed bamboo fly rod.
