Setting the planing form.

The Morgan but section ready for the planing form.

Slovely the bamboo start's look like rod sections.

The form is set for the first stage of the final planing.

The old Stanley plane has quickly become a favorite.

  1. I am going to start building my first bamboo fly rod in January. I'm eagerly reading all the information you have written and shown here. Your crafstmanship is beautiful!

  2. e.m.b.
    I think you will have a great time building your first bamboo fly rod. The feeling it was to sit on the banks of a trout river, a nice spring day with my first self-built bamboo rod, well it's a special feeling.
    Have fun.
