Thank you Adam and dray smile.gif

no, I didn't turn the hardware,..it's from Struble. The rod is varnished with poliurethane, the seats are "impregnated" with poliurethane glue thinned with acetone and then varnished.

Thank you Gesit smile.gif No, I used chinese-tonkin bamboo for these "onepiece rods... But I made rods from the local bamboo in the past. Because of the fine power fibers and quite thin layer of these I had to laminate the strips. Three layers for the butt and two for the tip.. A lot of work but the finished "product" was a "normal", very useable flyrod. I managed to land fish over 2kg with these "Local lamies".. wink.gif

Hello rsa,

very nice rods....realy.

I think, the next rod I will build is also a one piece.
But, how do you dry this long sticks?
Only by flaming, or do you have a long oven?

Best regards,
Michael

Thank you Adam.., Yes, grayling is a native fish in our rivers. There are two species, one lives in rivers which flow to the Black sea and the other in rivers which go to the Adriatic..

Thank you Michael. My oven(Neunemann) is only 1,50m long so I heavily flamed the culm split in half from the inside(Darryl Hayashida style) and then from the outside with the rope coiled to form a fine (cca.5mm wide) "tiger strip" pattern..
