Splitting Cane: June Rod Making Class Wrap Up

Jeff and Jon finished up the week Saturday with two beautiful bamboo fly rods.  Their rod building class went along seemlessly, resulting in each of the students having an heirloom rod.  Finished rods were flexed and cast across the street in the parking lot.

It was a great end to a fun-filled week of rod making.  Jeff and Jon learned a great deal, and in the process both ended up with great bamboo fly rods.  Here the two of them, long-time friends “bump cigars” in celebration.
