Fine Cane Rods - Bamboo Fly Fishing Homepage


Image: 8.5lb Sea Trout


The making of split cane rods has a history going back over a hundred years and has included many famous names producing large numbers of rods by machine in the golden age along with many hand makers of which perhaps the most famous is Everett Garrison. Both approaches can produce good rods but what makes a great rod is the care that is spent in every stage of its design and construction. Those afflicted with a passion for cane rods are driven to seek perfection and within these few pages I hope to describe and illustrate my own response to this very powerful affliction.
