I have been fly fishing all over the country for the past 30 years. About 8 years into fly fishing, I had a desire to try to build my own bamboo fly rod in 1999 and have been building rods ever since then. I started out making Hexagon (6 sided) rods then Quadrate (4 sided), lastly Rectangle Quad rods, these rods can be built solid or hollow. I build most of my machinery and jigs to make the fly rods. I design a lot of my own tapers for Quad, Rectangle Quad, and Hexagon rods. I have been building hollow rods which I like quite a lot. Obviously hollow rods are much lighter, but the swing weight is much different than a solid rod.
