Hand splitting and planing bamboo fly rods is an environmentally friendly art. Bamboo is a renewable material.
The vast majority of the rodmaking craft is performed with hand tools, minimising the use of electricity, while allowing maximum control and care in working the bamboo. Although some metal components, adhesives and varnishes are used in constructing rods, a bamboo rod is fundamentally a natural product.
