Message from the Maker

Thank you for visiting my website.

I'm John Dotson and I make bamboo fly, spin, and casting rods. I also repair and restore bamboo rods. My rods are carefully crafted from bamboo selected and imported from China. I use only nickel silver hardware, 100% pure silk threads, and the best cork available. From splitting the bamboo culm to applying the final coats of varnish, every detail is considered.

You are invited to view my Photo Gallery or check out my Newest Rods. Explore the possibilities and think of the joy that can come from owning a Clearfork bamboo rod.
