April 2011 Rod Building Class

The production-class Raine Better Binder got a good work out this week!  Sam flew in from Virginia to take a class here, and has made great progress throughout the week.  This is a photo essay of a few of the processes involved in building bamboo fly rods. A more complete slide show is now available. Notice the unique hand grasp that Sam selected for his first bamboo rod, the 8 foot “Upper Sac Special”!

Six of the Raine Better Binder have been completed. Straight rod sections, with no twists! A rod maker’s dream come true!
