The One Day Wonder Rod Ian P. Rutter

As more and more people have taken up bamboo rod making, new ideas have emerged and dramatically cut the time required to create a rod. The idea of the "One Day Wonder Rod" came from Stan Smartt, an accomplished maker of cane rods. Smartt decided to invite a group to his home in Wears Valley, Tennessee, to have a go at making a rod in a single day. Nineteen people responded, and the rod that they created helped generate funds to support the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Fisheries Endowment Fund.
