The Art of Bamboo
Fly fishing author Arnold Gingrich said,
On the day that Jascha Heifitz plays a plastic violin in the New York Philharmonic I would consider using a rod made of synthetic materials.
World-class music is made on exceptional instruments. An exquisite bamboo rod of six strips of Tonkin cane artfully split and tempered, then meticulously finished, is an instrument of incomparable casting quality with an appearance of fine art. A bamboo rod will literally take your breath away—the craftsmanship is exquisite in its fine detail. You will come to delight in the workmanship and grace of bamboo.
If you’ve longed for bamboo, Headwaters is your welcome home. Our classic bamboo rod tapers have a silky smooth action to delight anglers with a preference for fine crafted rods with a relaxed casting rhythm. Anglers worldwide have discovered the exhilaration of fishing Headwaters bamboo.
Six hand-planed strips of genuine Tonkin cane form a rich texture of functional yet timeless craftsmanship. Quality hardware complements the natural elegance of bamboo.
