Cool! I love rebuilding the old cane rods - was initially hoping to find a nice beat up old rod I could make a pen out of, but can't seem to find one with a big enough diameter. So now I have been trying to figure out a good way to plane a bamboo blank to hexagonal to look more like those beautiful classic rods...

Cheers,

Ken

I have an old cane salt water fly rod that would be big enough but it is in to good of shape to cut up for this. Even though I have no where to use the rod.

Yep, I know what you mean. I am not sure I would actually have the heart to take an old cane rod to the saw - unless it was seriously damaged and utterly unusable.

Okay, now I'm motivated to get my fly rod out.

Those are the nicest pens I've seen in quite some time. I greatly prefer the flamed one, but they're both exquisite. For the end jewels, I'd like to see some nickel silver to remind me of the fly rod guides and reel seat hardware. Or perhaps some nicely figured agate, like they used to use in the stripping guides. Heck, I'd be happy with some plain old cork!

Beautiful pens, absolutely gorgeous. If you ever consider putting together a tutorial, I'd love to see it.

Those are some awesome ideas there, thanks very much! Great to hear from a fellow fly guy.
