This entertaining video, the only existing film of any classic rodmaker, shows the great Everett Garrison in his workshop, demonstrating & explaining how he made his world famous bamboo fly rods. Beginning with splitting the raw bamboo, he details his own procedures, using his unusual binding machine, silk winding technique, & unique varnishing tanks, until we see a completed rod, ready for the river. A great companion to the classic rodbuilding book by Everett Garrison, A Master's Guide to Building a Bamboo Fly Rod. 40 min.
