Our Mission
Photos on this page provided by Matt Schliske

The American Bamboo Rodmakers Association is a non-profit organization designed to promote the use of finely-crafted bamboo rods to the general fly-fishing public. Our main goal is to use professional advertisements in mainstream fly fishing publications to dispel the myths surrounding bamboo rods and to educate the public about modern rodmakers.

100% of members dues are used for national advertising campaigns and business administration expenses (printing & mailing membership applications, web site, etc.) All elected board members volunteer their time and energy. Our national advertising campaign is designed by professionals with over 30 years of experience.
