For anyone who has ever picked up a fly rod…& found a story. This unique film documents the transformation of bamboo from a hardy species of grass into a meticulously crafted split-cane fly rod.

Trout Grass is an evocative journey into the passion of fly fishing while revealing the magical process of cultivating natural fibers into a functional work of art. From the verdant hillsides of Southern China to a dusty workshop & the clear rivers of Montana, this story reveals what the spirit of unseen hands can do for the soul. Writer David James Duncan’s first film script takes us inside the heart of one of America’s most beloved story-tellers, as we learn how plying the waters with a fly rod made of grass can help anglers find their place in the order of rivers & flowing things.

Follow the journey of a remarkable plant, through the hands-on approach to a century-old tradition, as master rod maker Glenn Brackett transforms a single bamboo pole into a stunning 3-oz. fly rod.

From the hands of a builder to the hands of an angler, we flow narrator David James Duncan and fly fishing legend Thomas McGuane to one of Montana’s resplendent waterways. Here, these two anglers reveal the magic of fishing with a fly rod made of grass and connecting with the order of rivers and flowing things.
