Keep Bamboo Rods Dry, Repairing them when they Warp

In the first place since the fly-rod forms our subject— although most of these suggestions are equally applicable to fishing rods in general—it should be said that the split-cane rod is peculiarly, often fatally, susceptible to dampness, and that consequently every precaution should be taken in this regard. In camp it should be taken down and put in the case over-night and certainly should never be left lying on the ground for any length of time. It is quite possible to put a fine split bamboo fly-rod temporarily or even permanently out of commission by allowing it to lie out over-night on the ground. Again, to avoid warp, the rod when assembled should never be leaned against a support in such a manner as to bend it. If left for a sufficient length of time, not necessarily a very long time, leaning in this way the bend will become permanent. Similarly, when the rod is un-jointed, the individual joints should not be leaned against a support in the manner noted, for the same reason.

The remedy and the method of prevention for warp or set are quite similar. The rod which has acquired a set should be hung up by the tip with a weight attached to the butt, provided the set runs through the entire rod; if only one joint is affected this should be treated in the same manner. By way of prevention when the rod is to be unused for a long time, as during the winter months, suspending each joint separately, or at least the tip and middle joints, is by far the best way of storing it. If you have a rod and gun cabinet it is exactly suited to the purpose. When the rod is suspended merely as a matter of precaution it is unnecessary to use a weight.
