Pacchef sent me some pics today of the 5' 1wt bamboo build in progress. So I just wanted to put them up so that everyone can watch how this comes along.

Wow, that looks so raw and basic- it's hard to imagine a finished product from those cane parts. I'm looking forward to the progress. Thanks for putting those up.

Cool! That flamed cane is going to make a dandy rod. I am looking forward to the next set of pictures.

I am amazed at how this works. I would love to learn to make a rod from raw cane.

I too want to start building cane rods. i remember being so hesitant to start tying up rods but once I didn it it was so easy.
I think a lot of the hesitation was spending the money on the things I needed - which of course is my hesitate with building cane.
Thanks for the post and look forward to the updates.

You can spend a huge amount of money buying/building specialized equipment for making bamboo rods, or you can do it for less than $100. I'd say most of us hobbyists get by with several hundred $$$ worth, depending on whether you buy new or used forms and tools, and how much stuff you can scrounge (I've got about $300 in used forms, binder, planes, and homemade oven). A good instruction book (like Wayne Cattanach's) is the place to start, as well as hooking up with a friendly pro for advice and access to small quantities of good, seasoned bamboo).

I've never recalled seeing a birch/cedar bark grip, so I'm really looking to see how this project unveils.

The rod is not glued up yet, just rough planed and heat treated. I will plane it sometime this week then glue. Still looking for a piece of antler for the handle if anyone knows where to get a piece.

Doug,
You got some extra OK whitetail antler laying around?

Les,
I've got a few from 35 years of hunting. Trying to find a piece that is basically straight is another story. Most of the reel seat stuff has to come from the antler base which has a lot of burrs on it. If it's too big in diameter, you end up with no detail and a plain bone reel seat. I can sort through and see if I can find a piece if I know the approximate finished diameter of the seat.

Gentlemen,

I need a piece at least 4" long x .75". If the pieces are not strait I could cut and laminate then turn. If I had 8 inches of material I am sure I could figure something out.
