Located on the bank of the West Branch of the Delaware River in Hancock, New York, Dennis Menscer is making some of the finest bamboo rods in the world.
Dennis is featured in the upcoming 2019 documentary,
Chasing the Taper, a film documenting the lives and work of some of the greatest living bamboo fly rod makers.
“When I first met Dennis, I knew he was my kind of craftsman. His ability to solve and implement mechanical problems is first class."
Walt Carpenter, Maker
“There are darned few rodmakers today who build their own ferrules; Dennis is one of these elite number. Today's bamboo angler owes it to himself to try one of Dennis Menscer's rods and to contact him if restoration of a classic is called for.”
Per Brandin, Maker
