            AHA!
                I have found a crossover interest! I belong to the Bamboo Rodmakers' Listserver and we often have questions with respect to the physical aspects of bamboo and its performance in flyrods for fishing. Would Dr Sastry be interested in fielding requests on that topic if they were phrased politely and didn't become obtrusive? We have members with physics, biological and engineering backgrounds on our list but there often arises a question which goes beyond the expertise of even those fields.

              I will be happy to answer queries.. if I cant I will refer you to  specialists in the field and/or literature. From where I was born..bamboo is the only material used for fishing rods..

                Hi Art,

                Based on what I know about Dr. Sastry, I am certain that he would be interested in replying
                to questions about bamboo. I don't know if he monitors posts to this group on a regular
                basis, but you could contact him by going to members and sending an off-group message
                to him. The last information I received was that he was away from home visiting relatives.
                He probably keeps up with his e-mail, wherever he is, but possibly not as frequently as he
                would do at home. My interest has been in the development of new products that might
                provide a few rural artisans with more income than they obtain by weaving baskets and
                mats. That interest was my motivation for starting this group, since strips of bamboo
                could conceivably be used as "planks" for the hulls, decks, etc., for small models of old
                wooden ships. The production of bamboo flyrods would be considerably more difficult,
                and the potential market is probably smaller for flyrods than for semi-scale ship models
                and toys. I will do a bit of checking and get back to you with more information about
                bamboo flyrods.

                Best wishes, old Frank

                  Thanks Frank,
                      We're a pretty esoteric group. We know what we're doing and how to do it, but not always WHY it works. That depends on the structure of the grass and that information's not always available to someone without a PhD in the field of botany. And from what we've seen, it's not always available if you DO have a PhD! <G> (So we'll be gentle - BSEG)

                    Hi Art,

                    Apparently Dr. Sastry does monitor our chatter because
                    he was faster off the mark than I was. Flyrod construction
                    is probably more of a domestic passion, so I went to the
                    American Bamboo Society's website and found this for
                    you at http://tinyurl.com/zwvf9 Let me know if what you
                    obtain there is inadequate and I will take another crack at it.

                      Hi Art,

                      Apparently Dr. Sastry does monitor our chatter because
                      he was faster off the mark than I was. Flyrod construction
                      is probably more of a domestic passion, so I went to the
                      American Bamboo Society's website and found this for
                      you at http://tinyurl. com/zwvf9 Let me know if what you
                      obtain there is inadequate and I will take another crack at it.

                      Best wishes, Frank
