Wrapping and Varnishing Bamboo Fly Rods: Friday’s Rod Building Class

It’s the end of the week, and Joe’s bamboo fly rod is just about done! It has been a long journey, but a quick trip from culm to finished fly rod. Here are some pictures of Joe building out his 8 footer:

Once again, the day ended with a little fishing on the Upper Sac. Joe has watched the river drop into shape while his been here. If you haven’t been able to read the tee shirts he has been wearing, Joe works for the Toolik Research Station in Alaska….his job entails going from Fairbanks to the Research Station on a fairly regular basis. It is a 350 plus mile trip in each direction…..on the same road that “Ice Road Truckers” is filmed!
