Why Bamboo?

In the mid 1800’s the hexagonal bamboo fly rod was developed and popularized by eastern anglers of the fledgling United States.

Designed in a time when things were made to last, the simple, sturdy construction of varnished bamboo creates a rod that is a true lifetime investment.

Beautiful, supple, and elegant, the American split bamboo fly rod has become the standard of fly fishing tackle by which all others are measured.
