Home of the original Grip N Rip Calcutta bamboo gaff.
Calcutta, Dendrocalmus strictus, bamboo has been the choice of the professionals in southern California for over a century. In the early 1900's, while using long Calcutta pole's, rope and hook's, the lightweight and steel strong characteristics of this unique bamboo allowed commercial fisherman to hoist massive tuna onto their boats. Today, Calcutta bamboo remains the choice material of the pros. From the local half day sport fishing boats to the world class long range fleet out of San Diego bay, the Calcutta bamboo gaffs standing tall on deck can't be missed.
