Of course, everyone has heard of totem poles but what comes to most peoples minds is the classic totem poles that Indian tribes of North America and Canada used. Totem poles have become highly coveted over the course of their modern major development (19th C. - 21st C). However, they were carved much before this time and an early drawing by a white settler, James Barlett, in 1792 shows clearly a totem pole at the front of a dwelling. These poles now appear everywhere in pop culture: museums and exhibitions, films, amusement parks, jewelry, knick knacks, and as corporate art installations. These poles are felt to be from as early as the 1840s, with some believed definitely from 1880, the last year that people lived in the village located on the island.

The totem pole pictured below is reported in a selection of news publications as having been carved and presented to New Zealand by a First Nations artist. A link to views of Maori poles that are not similar to the one at Northcote, along with an announcement re:Chief Hunt is here In addition, still other Maori poles appear similar to Easter Island heads, stacked tiki images, and unique images found nowhere else to date.

The main two things to keep in mind when buying or building a bamboo tiki hut bar is to, first, make sure that you are using real bamboo and, second, make sure the bamboo has been treated with appropriate chemicals if you plan to keep the bar outside. As a construction material, Bamboo has been renowned in East and South Asia, and the Pacific Islands, for millennia. Outside of the Pacific Islands covering your walls with bamboo will give your interior that subtle but unmistakable look that is associated with the South Pacific.

There are several types of fishing rods to choose from but for fly fishing specifically, the rods are longer, thinner and more flexible. Most of the rods today are made of composite materials such as carbon and graphite, carbon and boron or fiberglass materials; a more innovative version compared to the original bamboo split material. If you prepare your soil and water your beans when they need it you'll have a nice large crop of pole beans.

Cons: It tends not to be that much fun catching little fish on regular sized fishing poles and reels. Cons: These rods are usually stiff, and I find even the lightest ice fishing rod can be a little stiff for micro-fishing. Can be tough to order online as these rods really have to feel these rods in order to pick the right weight of rod, this can be a problem as most tackle stores outside of the northern US do not stock Ice Fishing gear. The pole isn't in the water 2 minutes, and they're reeling it in, then throwing it back out.

That being said, learning how to make a bamboo fishing rod can be quite a daunting task, and definitely not one to be undertaken by a complete amateur. The bamboo must be cut into strips that will compose the rod sections, bound together to retain their shape, and then dried to remove any excess moisture present.
