Is anyone aware of any bamboo fly rod makers on the North Island? I am interested in acquiring a new or used bamboo rod for small and intermediate stream fishing. Thanks for your help.

Matt Noakes in Wellington does. Iconoclast flyrods. He pops in here from time to time as OneHairyArm. Does it as a bit of a hobby; Not as active as he once was due to kids and all that goes with them I think.....

Very good rod maker. Builds them from scratch. I acquired one of his experiment blanks (8" 5wgt) and built it up - it's a very good small stream rod. Nice progressive taper
