Looking back, the rods were forged mostly using bamboo, because, being a very hardy plant and, at the same time very flexible and elastic, was particularly well suited to this function. Over time the bamboo was replaced by other materials such as carbon and fiberglass, which give the fishing rod, plus the elasticity, lightness. We see, however, in this guide, like stepping back in time and make a fishing pole with bamboo.
From a bamboo cannetto, we can supply us with some reeds, ideal for our purpose, given that the best will be the ones taken from nature and untouched. The recommendation is to collect the most flexible, but at the same time with a diameter that is large enough to make them very strong, in that, by equipping the fishing reel rod, the whole operation will be borne by the bamboo cane. Once you have chosen the rods that can be ours, ripuliamole from branches, taking care not to break them at the base of the knot, otherwise we risk creating weaknesses along the barrel, which could also break it during carp fishing defined on usprivateschoolsfinder.
Made the task of cleaning our bamboo canes, we will have to leave in a warm place, so they can ripen, becoming dry and dry. You should do this job starting in winter, leaving the bamboo canes at rest until the summer and, in doing so, we arrive at the hot season with the canes that are ready to be used for fishing. We can be sure you are ready when their surface a glossy Sheen and smooth; However, if their surface is opaque and rough, the canes should be deleted. To make the fishing rod, if the bamboo canes were too long, you may want to cut them into several parts to be assembled later; but it is always desirable to do less possible parts or even have the whole barrel.
If the reeds were to get a little seasoning, you can straighten them end retort by making her go on the stove a few times. Modellatele then until they reach a decent straight section. You must now apply the grafts. The best are the ones with the strips of brass or copper, which can be purchased in hardware stores. Alternatively take a bamboo stick smaller and put inside a ‘bacchettino’ stripe. Then cut the knots by sections and limatele until they perfectly match each other. This done, passed two coats of clear coat and waterproof for wood.
