Bamboo Tips - Contributors - Brett, Nick

< Home < Contributors < Brett, Nick

My Name is Nicholas Brett, Nick to all my friends.  I live in the UK, just outside London.  I started on the rod building process about 3 years ago.  Followed the 'Thomas Penrose' guide on the web and built my own forms. I'm onto Rod number 3, a semi parabolic, 7'6" two piece, where I've successfully split for twin tips for the first time!  I was pleased with Rod 1, really pleased with Rod 2, a Jim Payne Banty, just given the first varnish. I'm currently trying for an improvement on Rod 3.  Built a beveler based on a router recently, working well now set up properly.

I'm an engineer, I make my own ferrules and reel seat hardware. I'm 39, wife, two kids, dog, etc.  Love bamboo, building rods, tools and reading about it. Started reading 'The Book' - fascinated me, just finished reading 'Casting a Spell' for the second time - its a great book.
