Walker style landing net arms

I want to make a landing net, I can handle the spreader block, but I am baffled by the net arms, how are these constructed

Walker's design uses two strips of cane glued together. If you have a hunt around the forum, using the search engine, there is a thread in which master rod builder Paul Cook shows how they are made.
