Making Bamboo Blanks


Product Description

Using the methods originally taught by Daryll Whitehead, then refined through years of custom and light production rodmaking in the Golden Witch rod shop, Russ Gooding and his team will guide you from selecting the raw culm to the finished blank. Broken into discrete steps, making bamboo blanks is a surprisingly straightforward process. This video focuses on blank making, not as a mechanical engineering exercise replete with arcane formulae, but as an accessible craft to which all anglers can aspire. Bamboo is potent, yet sublime.
