This unique film documents the transformation of bamboo from a hardy species of grass into a meticulously crafted split-cane fly rod.  

Coursing from the verdant hills of Southern China to the sparkling streams of Montana, Troutgrass is a story of passion, international partnership and the discovery of place in our natural world.  This unique documentary captures the 10,000-mile journey of bamboo's transformation from a hardy species of grass to a super-conductive split-cane fly rod.

The film tracks Hoagy Carmichael on his first visit to China where he experiences the country's mystical bamboo forests.  As a legendary split-cane fly rod craftsman and author of the art's seminal study, these far-off lands have fueled Hoagy's drams for 40 years.  Next, we meet master-builder Glenn Brackett, who taps into "the power of unseen hands" in his Montana shop while converting this hardy piece of grass into a stunning and responsive river wand.

Out on Rocky Mountain waterway, narrator David James Duncan and fly fishing legend Thomas McGuane reveal the magic of fishing with a fly rod made of grass and connecting with the order of rivers and flowing things. 

Playing time:  47 minutes
