Greetings and Happy New Year to everyone. My rod building slacked off the last part of 2017 due to carpal tunnel issues. I had surgery in Dec and now looking to get back to rod building soon.

After a whole lot longer than I thought it would take I finally carved out a corner of the shop and built a dedicated room for my dip finishing process along with a heated drying cabinet. Looking forward to trying it out.

I use the best silk wrapping thread available and just about any color is available. I also tip the wrap with a contrasting color. Each wrap is coated 3 times for color preservation then the entire rod is given 3 coats of spar urethane.


Would you do me a favor and consider sharing this page with someone you think might have an interest in custom bamboo fly rods?
