I've got a couple of pieces of some good bamboo and was wondering how or what kinda finish u guys might use if you've done this before, I've read all kinds of stuff on the web and just lookin, gonna be a little winter project. Noticed most of the ones my gpa has have a reddish stain but he had no clue what was used since he picked em up at auction. Thanks

Try this site. It's bamboo rod makers site.

I've not started building rods yet so I can't give you any firsthand experience. I tend to like the blonde finishes or a slightly flamed rod. I'm hoping to take my first crack at a build of my first cane fly rod this winter. Just have two tools yet to buy.
