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 2017 Update - Fulton's Fire

There was a fire in the main lodge at Fulton's recently.  Denis Dunderdale has visited with Dale.  The main lodge is shut down but the adjacent units are still open.  It is unlikely that the lodge repairs will be complete in time for SRG.  Dale still wants us to have the gathering on his property.  We have no plans to relocate the gathering.

A few attendees have stayed at the lodge in the past.  Denis will be making changes to the room assignments.  Some will be staying in the White River Trout Lodge next door.  That's the A frame on the downstream side of Fultons.
