Hello all,

I make fly-fishing rods from bamboo (the traditional way) and because I want to bring this to another level I would like to get some help from those who can help me. I’ll be willing to make you a rod for free (they normally sell for around US$ 1000/1200) If you are willing to help me with this quest.

I want to be able to calculate my rod design from another angle.

I would like to graph the rods bending ( how it looks like at its greatest moment of bending)

And together with some other variables calculate the rods crossectional dimensions.

The idea is to make a whole new kind of fishing rod. I’m thinking about making rectangular shaped rods. Wider than deep in the plane of bending.

Of course it would be great if we too would be able to calculate the ideal bend form.

i.e. how should the rod be build to accelerate the fly line with minimum force.

If these few lines got you interested and if you are willing to help me out please send me an email to dannyheus@hotmail.com. I’m sure we will have a lot of fun finding the right answers.

Kind regards,

Danny
