custom made bamboo fly rods by wandering monk

 

…these rods & nets are truly a “labor of love”, and also represent a lot of my personal philosophy  not only in relation to angling, but also life in general…and are truly “my art” 

…turn around time for special order rods & nets is currently about 5-6 weeks , 2-3 for reels that are not in stock…

 

…a little about my pricing, products & other terms…

           All bamboo blanks are hand planed from split tonkin cane to precise measurements  …all blanks are “6 wedge style”, glued w/ waterproof glue and heat treated…hand shaved to final dimensions…         

           The nets are constructed w/ 5 lamination of North American hardwoods & super stout handles, all have 3X of an acrylic clear coats for durability…re bagging these nets every year or so is also very easy with the method I use…the nets are built to last a lifetime…I only use “C&R” rubber bags…

          These nets are a proven design by myself guiding & fishing on the South Platte River in Colorado 100 days a year for few years straight & thousands of fish landed…they worked very well on fish up to and over 5 pounds regularly…the “guide” model is an excellent tool for someone assisting in another’s catch,or for use on a drift boat…the “tailwater” also works well in guiding or where an extra reach is a help …all have my signature antler accents on them…and my WM logo branded on the handle…custom accents or personalization are also available…I make nets for shops in small quantities , and place there custom logo on them too…contact me for details…

all rods & nets have a materials and workmanship warranty to original owners for any repair due to a fault of mine or something flawed in a material for 1 year, excluding bamboo breakage. all repairs due to other than warranty repairs or after the time period are @ $40.00 per hour …all shipping paid by customer

I supply an extra tip w/ all my rods at no cost , and provide some advice and tips for those unfamiliar w/ bamboo and its use and care…if a few common sense practices are used these bamboo rods will last a lifetime…care after usage, avoiding certain situations and storing in a proper environment are gone over in detail…even if a rod becomes a “wall hanger” it still needs to be cared for properly if fished occasionally …I recommend purchasing an aluminum rod tube…rod’s ship is Schedule 40 PVC pipe which also provide a “spartan” yet durable storage container…

 

The Rod presentation cases and fly boxes are all made by myself in my shop…each case is custom made and fit to a specific rod,  the  fly boxes are made for presentation use more than streamside…coffe table, book shelf or tying bench…I also make fly boxes for shops in quanity orders..I can use an existing logo or help you design one suitable for a wood brand…contact me for details about these…
