These take much longer simply because the feet of each rod ring must be perfect too, the results are stunning.
A J Davis Craftversa
Just a note to say thanks for a great day yesterday - the Craftversa is simply the best cane rod I've ever waggled or used. And it's just gorgeous. Thanks also for the guest ticket, I really enjoyed the day on the Dove.
Traditional rods for traditional anglers
I believe that a rod should, whenever possible, be made from split cane bamboo, have cork handles, metal ferrules, silk whippings, and silver or bronze-coloured rings. Bamboo rods like this look right in a natural setting, they feel right when playing a fish and when casting, and have the reassurance of being lovingly made by a skilled craftsman.
