The Season of Reflection


By Joel Anderson

 

Thinking back over my career as a fly fisherman, fly tier, and more recently as bamboo fly rod maker, there have been many individuals who have influenced my progression. Some of these personalities I’ve known only through their writing. Others I have had the extreme pleasure with which to share a stream. They have all taught me so much, and I am infinitely grateful for their lessons.

The Future of Maine Fly Fishing


By Joel Anderson

With all three sections of my latest cane rod prepared for glue-up, I decided to put that process on hold and head down to the local river to fish the last couple of hours of daylight. Sometimes I get so involved in rod building, I forget that they were actually built with a purpose in mind. It was time to exercise that purpose.
