One more draw to bamboo is everything it requires to make a pole. From harvesting the culms, warming them, breaking them, preparing them, gluing, and wrapping. From beginning to finish the majority of rod builders could finish the procedure in 40 hrs. It's a procedure that takes devotion and also focus to detail, much like what is required to fish for trout.
My life as a fisherman started with bamboo. Like a lot of kids in the South, I fished with a walking cane post, a bobber, and also a worm attached to completion. Pretty far away from the timeless rods which have been relied on in the New England location as well as Europe for over 200 years.
