No fly rod of any material can match the presentation and the delicacy which is attained by fishing bamboo. Niemiera Fly rods are made from seasoned Tonkin cane. When you order a fly rod from me, a culm is selected and your invoice number is ascribed to it. My fly rods are available as classic " blond rods " which are oven heat treated, or as " flame tempered " which produce a straw color fly rod having rich beautiful dark amber tints. The culm is then hand split, and layed out according to the Garrison staggering method.

Although I use other staggers on occasion, I prefer the Garrison. This staggering of the nodes uses more bamboo, but it also gives additional strength and added durability without any added weight. These strips are then further split, straightened, and an initial bevel is planed into the strips. For " blond rods " the bamboo is now heat treated to increase its hardness and strength. These eighteen triangular strips, or " the sticks " as Everett Garrison called them, are then hand planed to exacting standards to achieve the specific taper requested for your fly rod.

These " sticks " are then glued, and when cured, the blank is scraped, polished, and fitted with turned nickel silver ferrules. Handles of individually glued AAA+ cork are skillfully shaped. Hand-made snakes, stripping guides, and tip tops are furnished and wrapped with the finest silks. The fly rod is then signed and serialized. Three coats of my special mix spar varnish in  the dip tank complete the Niemiera fly rod.

It has been my good fortune to have spent some of the most joyous moments of my life with you, my enthusiastic customers, many of whom have become dear friends over the years. My true reward as a rod maker,  are the times spent fishing with you, and seeing myself, the many pleased expressions as you've cast, fished, and landed trout with your Niemiera's in hand. To those who have called, sent e-mails, or personal letters, I want to thank you for your kind words, and for your support of Niemiera fly rods.

If you are new to my web-site, thank you for considering the purchase of a Niemiera fly rod.

From the east coast to the west coast of America, over into Canada, and from as far as Ripley, England, U.K., Niemiera fly rods have performed beyond their owners expectations.

Savor your next day on the stream - order a Niemiera fly rod today. It would be my pleasure to make a cane rod for you. You have my guarantee of satisfaction!
