Your source for flyfishing and flycraft resources since 1975.
There are many, many reasons to build, own and enjoy a bamboo fly rod. For over 150 years, bamboo has represented royalty, elegance and simplicity. Start fishing a bamboo rod and you ask your self just one question: What took me so long?
So now we introduce, for the 4th generation, the beauty, joy and fun of fishing a bamboo rod. You're probably thinking, wait, a bamboo rod costs around $1,000!!! Well, it does . . . or should I say, it can!
A lot of folks who fish bamboo, as well as graphite, will tell you that there is only one way to do things! We strongly disagree! Fishing, whether it's with bamboo, graphite, fiberglass or just a stick should be fun. We want to encourage folks to try new things and that's as plain and simple as we can put it! The photos on this page really says it all!
It is time to take the "mystery" out of fly fishing if we want our sport to start growning again!
You can fish bamboo at a reasonable cost AND in a reasonable amount of time. Since we can supply the blanks for you, prices starting at just $135 and kits starting at just $275, you'll be able assemble your “instant heirloom” in just a long weekend!!! If you've built a few graphite rods already, one weekend will have you on your way. (By the way, you can do this on your front porch, kitchen table or even in front of the TV!
