It has been an extremely busy spring season here in the rod shop, thanks to all of you. I've been honored to get many fine fly rods out the door so far, & many more on on the way to folks who are patiently waiting on them. Here are just a few that have gone out so far:
Along with the rods, many of the angling accessories that we make here have been in heavy demand including rod tubes, reel cases, mini packs, fly & leader wallets, etc.
The other day I was so happy & excited to get a message from a recent rod client that I found myself smiling all that day & into the next. I can't tell you what this meant to me. His note says it all.......
I want to compliment you on the 8ft 5wt 3 piece rod you built for me. The fit & finish are first rate and indicative of rods costing much more. The rod action is exactly as you described and is what I asked you to build. I was able to fish the rod today for the first time. It easily throws 50 ft of line and has a very smooth action. I was lucky enough to find some dumb trout and took a few Rainbows in the 16” range which jumped as I brought them in. The rod easily handled the erratic motion and I was able to get them in the net without any problems. Again, thanks for a quality product. I look forward to many season on the water with the rod"

Things continue to be busy in the rod shop. Later this year you should look for the return of the old style fly wallets & a new - improved fly book to hold all your larger wet & salmon flies. I'm excited to bring them to you.
If you'd like a new 3/4 wt fiberglass fly rod for those smaller to mid size trout streams, be sure to check out the rod listed on the Available Rods page. I'm sure you'd love to fish that rod.
