About the Gathering

Southern Rodmakers is an annual gathering of bamboo fly rod makers. Over 300 craftsmen from 39 states have gathered on the White river near Cotter Arkansas since 1998. If you're interested in making bamboo fly rods, join us at the gathering in October, or follow the links below to join the on-line gathering of bamboo rod makers. "The List" is a great place to start. The list is an old school e-mail server with hundreds of members around the world.

The New Rodmakers List

The old rodmakers list server crashed in the summer of 2018. All membership records were lost. A new rodmakers list is up and running. If you were previously a member of the list you will have to resubscribe at the new web site. Here's a link to the new site:

SRG Aprons

We had some bib aprons made with the SRG logo this year.  They will be available at the gathering.  The first apron is $15.  If you buy more than one the rest are $10 each.  We have 98 aprons.  There should be enough for everyone that wants one at this year's gathering.  Here's a photo:
