Head shot

Before I say anything else: If you see any photography here and it’s good, it’s a credit to Steve Glass.  Hire him.  If the photo is lousy, odds are high that Steve didn’t take it.

You’ve arrived at West Bamboo Custom Fly Rods, in Fort Collins, Colorado. You are, in fact, in the right place. Poke around the site and look at the pictures and read the opinions; there’s no shortage of either.

I’ve been hand-planing custom rods since 1997. If you’re looking for a bamboo fly rod or spinning rod, congratulations. Bamboo rods are always one-of-a-kind, are wonderful pieces of angling tradition and are the optimal tool for the right fishing situations. If you’re considering a new rod for yourself, buy bamboo; you’ve already got too much plastic in your house, anyway. If you’re a collector, check out my rods – I think you’ll like them. Looking for a gift? Fly rod.

Look around and feel free to contact me with questions.  Enjoy your time.
