Hudson Valley Rod Company

Split cane fly rods

Bamboo is an amazing organic material- growing upwards of 50′ in about 60 days. A grass with the tensile strength of steel that both flexes and dampens. Perfect for casting a fly line to hungry fish.

I am a one man shop located in the Hudson River Valley of New York. Each rod is made from a single culm of bamboo. There are upwards of 60 hours of handwork in every one that leaves my bench. I hope these rods will be fished and enjoyed for a long time.
