Here's my friend John in the mountains of California with a beautiful trout he landed using a custom fiberglass fly rod I made for him. Along with being a skilled fly angler, John is also an excellent fly tier as well. Take notice of the fishing bag over his shoulder - that was made in my shop as well.
Now for the next photos we go all the way to the other side of the world, to the beautiful country of Austria. My friend & expert fly angler, Bernard, took to the Pielach River with a bamboo fly rod I made. For those of not familiar (I wasn't until Bernard told me about it) The Pielach River is home to numerous endangered & rare birds, plants, & other animals. It's a beautiful river I'd love to see someday - nature at it's finest.
As I said, I love to see the rods & other gear I make in use. It really reminds me of why I'm doing this - to give you better enjoyment from fly fishing. I'm honored & proud that anglers from all across the United States, Canada, Europe, & all around the world are choosing me for their fly fishing needs & custom rods.
Do you have a photo of your fishing adventures you'd like to share? I'd love to see them, so please send them in. Let me know the story behind them. Maybe it's a photo of your favorite local stream, or an awesome fish you caught, or something interesting that happened while you were fishing, or even some nice flies you tied - feel free to share them with me. If you want, we can share your photos & stories here, too.
John, Bernard, & the rest of you - thank you all so very much!!!
