Item Description...
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.

Building Bamboo Flyrods  Feb 27, 2008
This is a good book to get you started on the basics like sharpening, selecting bamboo, preparing and making equipment. What he says in the book is very much enhanced by his 3 DVD set, which I purchased off of ebay. If you can get the DVDs it will really help you the book should come with the DVDs in my opinion. It isnt a very glamorous book in terms of photos, but there are enough pictures to give you a good basic idea of what you need to do. There are many tapers for rods in the appendix, which is nice to have.
Hndcrafting Bamboo Fly Rods: Not for everyone  Jan 22, 2002
This is a good reference book, but should not be your sole source of information. Too much is left out that is critical to building a first rod. For example, a lot of details are missing with regards to what you need to do with the blank once it comes out of the glue binder. WHat about scraping, filing, sanding and keeping those sharp edges? The book could also do with better organization.
Great book a must have  Jan 16, 2001
Great book a must have for the rod builder.
