product description

Compared to England and the USA, the Japanese began to build split-canes relatively late, namely after 1945, when their country was occupied by the Americans who brought their fly rods with them. Today there are around fifty professional rod makers, a very high number compared to other countries.

In his book "Mostly Bamboo", Yuki Bando introduces eighteen fly rod builders, most of whom work with bamboo, through interviews and describes the peculiarities of their working methods.

What is particularly interesting is that they use besides Tonkin various bamboo species for their exquisite rods.

"Mostly Bamboo" is beautifully illustrated, mainly with wonderful black and white photos. On the last 38 pages, the works of all rod makers are presented in color. I would love to pack my bags tomorrow to get to know these rod makers and their wonderful works personally.

 Mostly Bamboo

It is particularly interesting that the Japanese not only use Chinese Tonkin, which is often referred to as the best type of bamboo for split-canes, but also various native species of bamboo such as Madake, Hachiku and Yadake for making rods.
