Broken into discrete steps, you’ll discover that making bamboo blanks is a surprisingly straightforward process. This video focuses on blank making, not as a mechanical engineering exercise replete with arcane formulae, but as an accessible craft to which all anglers can aspire. Bamboo is potent, yet sublime. Try it!
