      Our seventeenth member is Dr. Cherla Sastry,
      founding Director General of The International
      Network for Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR).
      Dr. Sastry retired from that position and is now
      a professor (adjunct) of forestry at University of
      Toronto. That's somewhere in Canada I think.

        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.
        Thank you,

          Dear Friends,
           
          Presently, I am on a holiday in California and do not have ready access to a computer or my library.
           
          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

                  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.

                    Thank you Art for this URL, I added a link "Bamboo Rod Making Tips"
                    so it can be found after this string has passed out of sight, and as the
                    saying goes, "out of mind."

                    Best wishes to all, and to all a good night,
