Dear Angler Friend,
Build your fishing rod with
" MY FLY ROD" – virtual image non contractual
Do you wish to fish with your very own hand made bamboo fly rod?
Read "MY FLY ROD" and you will be able to build yourself your very own split bamboo fly rod.
Since 1979 I have built more than a hundred fly rods for myself and my friends..
I have organized 16 training courses for the building of bamboo fly rods and have taught hundreds of people the delicate art of following the tradition and appreciating the beauty of a hand made fly rod and the novelty of a really scientific approach to the rod action..
Thirty years of my expertise and experience is contained in this book
If, you too wish to share what I know and realize the pleasure of making and using your split bamboo rod yourself or with your friends- "MY FLY ROD" is for you .
Nineteen years ago, in a hurry, the first issue of "LA CANNE A MOUCHE" (Now out-of-print) appeared as the sole book in French about building a split cane rod. The greater part with excerpts from the new edition is on the site http://www.bamboo-fly-rod-building.com .
Nevertheless, this new issue is much more than that.
Inside this downloadable book, you will find and learn :
1. 125 pages of step-by-step explanations on how to build your rod,
2. 117 photographs, 32 technical sketches and drawings in 12 chapters describing precisely how to :
3. Flaming, split, strip split and stagger the strips (Chapter I)
4. Give the strips a triangular section (Chapter II),
5. Construct an oven and temper the strips inside (Chapter III),
6. Build your final planing forms, adjust them to fit the chosen taper (Chapter IV), lighten (alveolate) before gluing (Chapter V),
7. Build your binding machine and cement your strips (Chapter VI)
8. Link the pieces with a splice, a spigot or a ferrule (Chapitre VII),
9.Make your hand grasp, your reel seats, caps and rings (Chapter VIII),
10. Mount your guides (Chapter IX) and make your bindings (Chapter X)
11. Varnish your rod (Chapter XI)
12. Understand the rod working and compute your tapers (Chaper XI)
13. and so on...

Some testimonies of satisfied (and gained !) readers !
I really enjoyed your book.
Hello Josselin de Lespinay,
I have been waiting for you to reprint La Canne A Mouche as I have been
searching for a copy of your first printing unsuccessfully.
I really enjoyed your book.
I have read most of the American books on building bamboo rods and found your book to be well worth reading. It
has procedures and methods I have not seen before.
I think releasing all of
the videos along with the book would let the reader move at their own pace.
I believe that if you translated La Canne A Mouche into English you will
find a new audience.
I am particularly interested in the way you splice the tip section to the
butt section instead of using ferrules. I hope your video explaining pages
72 – 77 thoroughly.
This concept as it is literally foreign to me. I read
Bremond’s article from the late 1970’s about hollow building and using a
splice rather than a ferrule but I am still a little baffled by it.
A scale drawing of a layout like you show to the left of the bamboo in the
picture on page 54 – (5.5) with the distances noted (lengths of the cells
and the spaces in between) from one end to the other referencing a
particular taper such as the Alcibiades so I can better understand the
concept would help. Even having the position and lengths of the cells
written to the right of the tapers on page 128 would be helpful.

Your work is a good address
and help to realize a rod
Bonsoire M. de Lespiney,
I am sorry, I can read and speak Franc, but I am unable to write in your beautiful language. So I replay in English.
I think that your work is correct from the descriptive point of view.
The videos are explicative and well made. I suggest only to add same music
to accompanying the vision.
Soft and meditative musics, for example, like Erik Satie.
I think that your work is a good address and help to realize a rod.
I think that the sequence of sending the videos parts are correct.
I think that the price of the book is correct considering the complexity of
the work that you have made.
I hope that this short words can be useful for you, and you have my complete
authorization to use it in your web page.
Thanks for your work.
Me salutation le plus distinguées
I like the simplicity of your method
I like the simplicity of your method. I knew that there just had to be a better way to build a rod than machining "bigger, better, faster" tools.
Thanks a lot.
