Finishing Bamboo Rods from Golden Witch-DVD
Aesthetic decisions, fit, and finish define the quality of a split bamboo rod long before an angler tests its action
over rising fish. An elegant rod is a harmonious composition, melding classic styling with components that hark
back to the era of our forefathers: agate stripping guides, fine silk threads, cork, native wood, nickel silver, and
natural oil & resin varnishes. Well finished, a bamboo rod looks good, feels good, and even smells good.
Although each rodmaker will choose a different aesthetic, all rodmakers must master the details of fit and finish.
