Wednesday Bamboo Fly Rod Making Class: Final planing and glue-up!

Wednesday is always “humpday” during the class. It’s necessary to have the rod sections glued up before we leave for the day. Cort planed away diligently, and not one strip needed to be redone. Way to go Cort! For his Payne 100 taper, Cort chose a 3-up node stagger a-la Leonard. Here are a few photos of today’s highlights, including the rare photo of the gluing binder at work (usually we are ALL involved in this process!)

Stay tuned for more rod building action! Thursday we will put it all together and have a ferruled and corked blank!
