TC, certainly no shortage of bamboo here. Nothing like a good cane in the 14 ft., range for bluegill and specks. Sarge

Also, set lines for cats. Easy to find, cut and use.

I've made a few from my own bamboo patch.

I've been working with home grown bamboo. I normally cut the yellowish colored canes and give them time to dry so to speak. Any trys or luck with Making 2 pieces??

We don't have bamboo up here where I live, but we do use cane poles. I have 2 piece cane poles that are 50 years old. We use them on spawning bluegills, then at night all summer catching bullheads off the end of our dock. Probably easier with casting rods, but a Coleman lantern and cane poles baited with nightcrawlers or dead minnows is how we've done it as long as I can remember.

I just made a couple for two of my Nephews (4 and 5 years old ) . I have a small patch of cane in the side yard that I planted 15 or so years ago . They only get about 12 feet tall , but make a fine pole for the Young ones . I think there is no better way to get a small kid started . No back lash , No hooking someone on the cast . Swing it out , lift back the fish. Doesn't get any easier than that . They will make good use of the poles either off the dock or from the boat in their Grandpa's lake .Can't wait to hear the story when the first big bass beats the bluegills to the bait .

Back in the day, they used to sell cane poles at the hardware store. One piece......came with a piece of line, stick bobber and a hook. Later on......that became two piece rod........which could come apart on you. If you were smart, you rigged the line to come down to terminate 4 or 5 feet above the base. When I was about 5 or so......was fishing for bluegill and hooked a big bass instead. I was losing the battle, so my mother took over and before it was all said and done........fish had snapped that cane pole. She still got it in to the bank as line had been terminated near the base.

My guess is cheap snoopy zebco knockoffs are what kids are forced to use these days. What a shame.

I was introduced to cane poles by my dad.. he an old lews cane pole. It was stained red from the factory.. sadly it gave up the ghost while fighting a big catfish in.... but I was then taught how to make 1 piece poles.. pretty dang cool for young man of 8... lol.. 33 years later and I've stepped up to making 2 and 3 piece poles.. I use braided masonary line as my fail safe top to bottom connection.

One time I was in Alabama doing a little jug fishing for catfish. My father n law cut apiece of cane , rigged it up, stuck it in the ground. I wasn't too impressed. The next morning he had about a 4 lb catfish.

No bamboo around here….. I do use a two piece bamboo pole and also own a couple of telescoping rods made out of fiberglass—my guess and way

Tons of fun

Caught my first fish on a cane pole at age 5. It was a 5# channel cat out of a small dugout pond near Superior, NE. I'm 52 years old now and I still remember that few minutes of my childhood. About the only memory of those days in my mind. I can't remember using a cane pole since, but it does make me want to give it another go.

Cane poles sorta went by the wayside with the advent of telescoping fiberglass poles.
Much easier to transport and store, and you can get them in any size you want.

My GGF used to take me fishing and we always used cane poles. 2 friends 2 cane poles and not a care in the world. Those were good times. Great memories
