INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMER, please read last paragraph

For over 50 years, Francis Degere has been making bamboo fly rods in his Adams, Massachusetts home. "Digger," as he is known, spends 100 hours handcrafting each split-cane rod from a single culm of bamboo. His skills and techniques are revealed as he teaches the craft to his apprentice, Fred Moran, thus passing on the torch to the next generation. Shot in documentary style, this film is more than a document of a man and his craft, more than a how-to guide: it is a tribute to a way of life and work that is vanishing in our modern mechanized world.
