Little slant-eyed devils. Fucking formidable foes. Tough. Resourceful. Committed. Glad we ain't fighting those guys any more. Another, politically, un-winable war. IED's--the punji stakes of the middle east war. :gun

I'm sure that puji stake ordeal was a pile of shit......but walkin down a street and havin a car blow up on you is some shit. And then the fucker start shooting at you from motherfucking buildings. Shit. Glad I'm not doing that again. Thank God for close air support.

I can do that.
First thing after getting the 12' poles is to cut them in half (see picture). The tip section is used to make the tips. The butt section for the rod butt. Knock a check split in it to keep excess splitting down during storage.

Next, the bamboo is heat treated.
The next few rods I am going to make are going to be blonde. This tutorial is how I do it:

Also what happens when most of the populous doesn't bother to think past simple one liners and blatant jingoism. Viva la revolution! oh wait, never mind...
