Bamboo rodmaking classes
Bellinger hosts between 8-10 individuals a year to learn to make bamboo fly rods. The class starts on a Thursday morning and the students leave on Sunday. Croco teaches students that want to make one bamboo fly rod, and he gets people who want to go into the bamboo blank making business that plan to make 100-200 rods a year.

I received the Headwaters bamboo rod today am I am very impressed with your service and high quality bamboo rod. I CAN’T WAIT TO FISH IT. All my fishing buddies are impressed and will no doubt be calling you for one of their own. Thank you.

Thanks for the wonderful craftsmanship. You guys are amazing.

Testing her new bamboo fly rod out on the Fall River

There’s an optional cradle too in case you want to display your bamboo rod tube on a mantle or elsewhere. It’s also made of bamboo and has a black velvet lining to keep the tube in position.

This past weekend I participated in a tournament on the San Juan River via the Texas Hole Charities benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project. Day two we all were handed a box five flies and a bamboo rod, the 7’6″ Field Grade. At first I wasn’t impressed but by the end of the day I was able to do everything I wanted with it and quickly became very impressed.
