Woodworker's Journal: How to Build a Bamboo Fly Rod
To us, a lot of woodworking magazines kind of blur together. In a way, they're sort of like cooking magazines; you get one or two for a year or so and you've got enough to carry you through for quite a while.
This is why we applaud Woodworker's Journal for the cover story in their latest issue (which just showed up on the doorstop). How to Build a Fly Rod...now that's an interesting project. It's refreshing to see a woodworking magazine take on something that's not, well, a cabinet or a workbench. Sure, we're generalizing here, but come on, a fly rod!
It's a cool project, and by the way, far too complicated for us, but if you've got the time and the interest, it looks like a hell of a way to spend about 4,000 hours of your time.
The article is available online here.
Woodworker's Journal also features articles by Chris Marshall, who we've met a number of times and can vouch for the fact that he's a really great guy. We can also say that he's a madman behind the wheel of a super-charged go-cart (as is Jude from Toologics), but that's another story...
