Welcome to 60/40 Split Cane Bamboo Fly Rods. John Clancy-Maker. Fine bamboo fly rods and related artwork. My approach to bamboo rod making is simple. I strive to make the best rods that I can, every rod, every time. Period. Hand planed and hand crafted. Rods that are superb in craftsmanship and timeless in aesthetic.

8”x 22” Titled “Double helix“. These are original art pieces individually hand crafted by me with raw Arundinaria Amabilis bamboo and a fully finished hexagon bamboo rod section and grip. These works are my vision of what truly lies beneath the power fibers of a raw culm of bamboo. Inspired by many hours at the work bench, my thoughts translated. These works are signed by me and assigned a serial number. These works are custom made to order. I can also craft a piece to compliment your custom rod order. Email for more information.
