Call me a cheater but I just buy cheap take down cane poles on EvilBay and build the rest of my fishing kits from there. I doubt cane poles have changed much over the years and while I don't have any documentation, I'm betting folks have been making take down cane poles for a long time. If the poles I get have cheesy aluminum ferrels on them, they come off easy and you can then whip the ends with thread. Take down poles are handy and we don't find any cane naturaly growing in these parts.

none of the egyptian, greek, or japanese show take down poles, but the europeans and the chinese from about the 1500's on do show it in pictures and documents. Take downs for our time frame would be PC.

Dame Juliana's all purpose rod was 13~14 feet in length and made in three parts, the top was hazel, the middle was hazel, willow, or ash, and the bottom was blackthorn or crab (what ever that is).
