Upcoming Shop ClosuresWe will be closed June 7th through June 25th, inclusive. This is our summer break for family time, and it’s something we’ll be doing every year from 2017 forward. The shop is 100% closed for business during this span, so please plan your orders accordingly. And thanks for your understanding! I love this company, but it chugs along keeping me busy seven days a week all year, so this is the break I need to keep from burning out. If you need custom items in June, I STRONGLY suggest ordering before May 7th for certain shipment before the June closure. Thanks! - Russ

Hello Rodmakers & Restorationists!
The Latest Ramblings
Chopsticks. Love bamboo & Asian cuisine? You can craft hexagonal bamboo chopsticks. For novice rodmakers, they represent a good way to practice setting up and using a planing form on something arguably less important (and intimidating) than a first set of rod blanks.For every maker, chopsticks represent an incredibly useful way of productively using scrap bamboo from the rodmaking process. And what a teaching tool, too,
In 1997 or so, Frank Armbruster of Colorado Bootstrap published a Free Report on the basics of how to build a bamboo fly rod. He advertised it in the classifieds of a popular national fishing rag for the price of one SASE and a couple of unused stamps. Our own Matt West responded to that ad, and that was the first day of the rest of his life.
