Bamboo Fly Rods: Glenn Brackett Audio Interview presented this interview with bamboo rod guru Glenn Brackett last week. Though a large download (33MB), it’s a fascinating opportunity to hear one of rodmaking’s modern legends talk about his life and experiences with rodbuilding. For example, Brackett points out that his first visit to R.L. Winston happened as an 11-year-old. (From there, of course, he went on to become an owner of the company, most recently he decided to leave the company because of differences with management.) He also talks about a bunch of interesting stuff, including the myth of the fragility of bamboo, the differences between bamboo and graphite performance, and about learning to build bamboo rods.
