HANDCRAFTING BAMBOO FLY RODS
Wayne Cattanach
Softcover

Detailed, comprehensive guide to all aspects of making fine bamboo fly rods. Entire process is detailed, from hard, raw bamboo to beautiful finished rod with clear, step-by-step instructions. Includes: best supplies, tools & materials, heat treaters, rod taper, weight, stagger bamboo strips, mount reel seat, ferrules, tip top, + much more. B&W photos & line drawings t/out; 8.5x11 inches, 224 pgs.
The bamboo fly rod still represents the pinnacle of the fly-fishing art; its apparent simplicity and delicacy belie the craftsmanship and strength that are the hallmarks of all great rods. A growing number of people have tried to learn the art of making bamboo rods from a shrinking number of secretive craftsmen.

The revised and expanded HANDCRAFTING BAMBOO FLY RODS is the definitive reference for beginners and experts alike. Wayne Cattanach begins by explaining the qualities that distinguish bamboo from all other materials: It has a tensile strength akin to steel, yet it is very light.

He describes the process that will take anyone from lengths of hard, raw bamboo to a beautiful finished rod with clear, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, including how to find the best supplies; select tools and materials; make heat treaters and binders; cut culms; straighten bamboo strips; plane and stagger strips; bind strips; apply finishes; mount the reel seat, ferrules, and tip-top; and much more. This is surely the most thorough book available for those who wish to make and fish their own bamboo fly rods.
