    Morris the Rodmaker (complete version) now available on YouTube


    Hello all; FYI I have posted the complete film "Morris the Rodmaker" (made in 1979 as a student at the University of Michigan) on a public link on Youtube. I plan to upload the two full length interviews with Bob Summers and Robert Traver shortly.

    Thanks to everyone who has ordered the DVD from me over the years. It's still available on DVD but I would prefer folks just watch it over the interweb.

    Not sure if I can embed a link here but a search for "The Rodmaker Youtube" brings it up as the first hit.

    Enjoy-- and please spread the word!

    Thank you for making that video accessible. I've never had the pleasure of casting one of your grandfather's rods, but from what I've heard and read, he crafted some of the finest rods ever made.

    A fun part of that video is seeing this ultimate craftsman of bamboo just enjoying fishing of all types, whether it was with split cane, a glass rod, or casting spoons. Great job on your part taking that personal treasure of home movies and turning it into a tribute that others could enjoy.

    Thanks much, Barleywine: Here are the links to the two interviews. As close as the movie is to me and my personal history, I feel that these rare unedited interviews may be the real treasure that I created oh so many years ago. To think I was 19 years old and hanging out at with the likes of Bob Summers *and* the author of Anatomy of a Murder! Whew...
