Default Starting on my 4th Split Bamboo Rod

I am starting on my 4th Bamboo Rod. This will be a 8' two piece 5/6 weight Smartt Blackfoot taper. I have made two rods on this taper already (one for myself and sold one). I have been bleaching the culm in the sun for a few weeks and may flame it tomorrow. I sold this one to a good friend of mine and told him not to get in any hurry as I fish in the summer and make rods in the winter. I will have it ready for him to fish next spring. I am planning on him "helping" some with the rod (planing, sanding, and wrapping). I thinke he will enjoy that.
The Journey begins.............

God Bless,
Dances with Trout
