Bamboo Fly Rod Blanks

11 October 2013 - 06:50 PM

I have just finished making a bamboo fly rod from a blank. I normally make my own from scratch but I seen a number of subscribers to this forum posting comments or desiring a good blank to use for assembling a fly rod. I ordered a rod blank from R. Chapman & Company in Great Britain. It was a 3-piece 6 ft 6 in 4 wt blank. It was straight and had been polished ready for finishing. Let me say I am completely satisfied with the product. I paid GBP157.00 or about $250.00 dollars for including shipping. I highly recommend this supplier to anyone wanting to build a bamboo rod but is not prepared or able to make their own blank. Check out their website www.chapmanblanks.co.uk/.
