Well the good chaps at Fishing Fury have published my rambling description of making my first traditional bamboo fishing rod. If you have been following my blog for a while, I made a lot of various posts this spring about my progress but this is a round-up describing the process from start to finish, with lots of good-sized photos. I must say FF’s Jonathon Marshall deserves all the credit for editing my text and processing all the photos into the nice format they are in, seeing as just I e-mailed him a Word file and all the raw images. I hope you enjoy it as much I enjoyed the rod making!
