2025 DEPOSIT for 6-Day Oyster Bamboo Fly Rod Making Classes



We teach more new bamboo fly rod makers every year than anyone else, and our experience will show in YOUR finished fly rod.  

What separates these classes from many others, is that you will actually complete your rod during our class.  That's COMPLETE - a rod of your choosing, your signature under three coats of varnish, in a bag, in a tube, with a label, ready to hit the water!

  • six days of instruction by Bill Oyster
  • each student may choose to make any length and line wt.
    they desire
  • you customize all cosmetic options from reel seat, to thread
    wraps, and cane tone
  • all tools, components, hardware, and materials provided
  • no experience necessary
  • rod bag and tube included
    bamboo rod you made yourself!


Total class price is $2950*

(includes six days of instruction by Bill Oyster,
tools and components, and of course your newly completed bamboo fly rod!)
Reserve your spot by making a $500 deposit.

Because of the high demand and limited availability for our bamboo fly rod making classes, a $500 deposit is required to secure a space.  If you are unable to attend your scheduled class date, you may use the $500 as a credit towards an available date, merchandise at our brick & mortar store in Blue Ridge, Georgia or our online store up to 90 days prior to your class. Deposit not applied toward promotions or labor. At 90 days, your payment is due in full (less the $300 cost of materials) and is non-refundable and non-transferrable.
