Almost any waterproof (or nearly woterproof) glue has been and is being used.  You might do a search here:  http://classicflyrodforum.com/forum/ .  Some examples would be epoxy, Titebond II and III, resorcinol, Unibond, and Gorilla Glue.

A well-made cane rod will not break along the glue surfaces as long as the glue does not deteriorate.  Deterioration is not a problem with most modern glues.  Some of the glues used in the past (some hide and fish glues) can break down if the rod is not well-cared for.  Despite that, many rods made with those glues are still being fished without problems today.
