Many of my designs start out as a question. A rod building friend asked whether I had ever seen a stacked bamboo reel seat. I hadn't but I went with the idea and came up with a landing net handle that honors the use of bamboo in fly fishing. I can use stacked bamboo as a limited design element or as a full handle. Each layer of bamboo is fitted and glued individually then coated with multiple coats of epoxy to stabilize and protect. This feature adds $100-200 to the price of a net.
