Best advice is to go for it if you are so inclined-don't wait! I'm not a bamboo craftsman but there is nothing quite as satisfying as fishing a rod that you constructed yourself. You will probably want to do another one and may never view a "rod off the rack" the same again. Possible helpful books might include "Constructing Cane Rods" by Ray Gould and John Gierach's "Fishing Bamboo" for history and industry perspective. I know nothing about bamboo classes but wish you best of luck!
