“a useful thing, beautifully made”
When you close your hand around the grip of a fly rod, the rod becomes an extension of you. Only bamboo affords the opportunity for that extension to be personal and perfectly suited to your casting style.
I craft bamboo fly rods for the joy of building. From an unruly stalk of cane, with gossamer silk, polished agate and alloys of nickel and steel, I blend a harmony of function and form, the personal expression of the best that a fly rod can be.
I've chosen to build four-sided fly rods (quadrates) for their elegant geometry and challenging construction.
Your own ideas of a fly rod can find clear expression in a handmade bamboo rod, fitted to you individually.
