Hello everyone!

The fly-fishing season 2012 on some rivers already begun and i´m already counting down the days to the opening season on my Vipava river.

But in this period i will spend more time to make a new custom-made bamboo fly-fishing rod. It will be a 2 pieces, 7 feet, line 4 rod for dry flies and smaller nymphs. I will make a slightly different model as the “Sir Darryl” special made from Wayne Cattanach. Rod makers usually made 2 tippets, i will made only one.

First of all it is obligatory to cut the bamboo pole to several pieces and regulate their straightness with fire. Because the rod will have a hexagonal shape,  we will need six pieces for each part. The pieces must be planed in special stencils with a planer, to obtain a triangular shape. All six pieces put together will made its characteristic hexagonal shape. All this work requires a lot of time and patience.

 

To be continued…
