We found on Vimeo interesting and very lovely video. Video about birth of bamboo fly rod. Shwood Eyewear inspired film series – MAKERS. In Part 4th features Aaron Bamboo Fly Rods. In this video you can see hand work of craftsmen and get to know the technology from the past. How Aron says “nothing can match bamboo as a material for light spinning and fly fishing rods” and maybe it’s true. Please take a look at this video and try to catch the spirit of bamboo fly rod.
