For fly-fishing enthusiasts, the coveted tool is a bamboo fly rod. David Kenney, of Middlesex, Vermont, originally started building bamboo fly rods as a side business to his full-time furniture making. Now he exclusively makes these beautiful split-canes, “building a bit of a story into each rod.” Note his attention to details, such as gold-plated edging, curly maple wood accents, cork grips shaped by hand, and scroll engraving. Three series of rods are available, with two-piece and three-piece models; prices from $1,150. 802-371-7563; dkenneyflyrods.com
