    My dad reciently gave me one of his antique bamboo fly rods. It's still very straight. I just wanted to see if anyone had any book recomendations or web sites where I could find information on restoration of bamboo fly rods. I have a background in antique furniture restoration so I would not be starting from scratch.

    I have said this before on this forum but it bears repeating. "Clarksclassic forum is probably the single largest bamboo brain trust on the planet".
    The forum members are responsive and very knowledgeable.
