Cosa farete

A fly rod is built in the same way that bamboo grows. From the bottom, or butt, to the tip. You will remove a node from a 12' culm of Tonkin bamboo, using a small hack saw, as the first step in seeing how a custom 8' node-less fly rod is made. Then you will split one of 72 splints needed to form the tip or butt of the rod with a hammer and knife. You will scarf one splint to shape it for gluing. Fancy planing, shaping the cork handle, and silk wrapping will be demonstrated along with the final varnish dip. At the end of the class you are invited to cast a variety of rods that I have made with a casting lesson on the "green river" of my lawn. In 2 hours you will see how the rod is made but you will not build a completed rod -- that takes 100 hours!
Other things to note
Wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. If you have a favorite fly reel that you want to try on a finished rod bring it along.

The first time I saw a node-less bamboo fly rod I was enthralled by the stunning craftsmanship. The maker of the rod had been working at his craft for over 50 years and was ready to retire but first agreed to teach me the craft. six years ago we set up my shop and after 100 hours I completed my first rod. It is a pleasure to share the rod making experience with others.

What a wonderful experience learning how to make a fly fishing rod out of bamboo. My father loves fly fishing and I'm a mechanical engineer by trade, so the process of learning how to make the rod was just as enjoyable as spending time with my Dad. Deb is not only knowledgeable but fun to talk to and learn from. I might have found a new hobby.

Deb is amazing. She is so knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. I did this with my boyfriend who is an avid fisherman, and I am not nearly as knowledgeable. But we both loved it! I will be back!

What a fun and unique activity! My husband and I had a great time learning about the process of crafting bamboo fly fishing poles. My husband is the only fisherman in our family but we both could appreciate the amazing craft that goes into creating these beautiful poles. Deb and Glen were wonderful hosts and clearly enjoy sharing their craft with others. We had a marvelous time!

I booked this as a surprise activity for my partner’s birthday and the experience did not disappoint! While you don’t have the time to build an entire rod in one session you do learn all of the skills and go home with an amazing document filled with information! I’m not an avid fisher and I love it! You quickly realize how fly rod building becomes a hobby and a passion. Deb was so kind and welcoming and made the day so special for us. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone.
