Bamboo Fly Rod building class Thursday October 2010

Smooth. Very smooth. That is how I would describe this week’s rod building class. Bob and Jim have been building their bamboo fly rods with smoothness. And it is apparent that “smooth is fast”. Thursday is rod section clean up, ferrule prep, cork grip turning, assembling the afore-mentioned components, and dipping the rod sections. Both of their fly rods look just fantastic. These two guys are small-stream experts, and the Model 100 rods they are building will be just the ticket for the streams they fish!
