Here's how it works: You & I discuss what grade of rod you'd like to give them & I might have a few simple questions for you to help me figure out what they need in a rod. Then after you've made the down payment, or paid in full, I'll mail you a special certificate that states a custom fly rod has been ordered in your recipient's name for you to give them at the Holidays. Think of it as a gift certificate for a custom made fly rod.
To make the presentation of the certificate really extra-special, the gift certificate will come rolled up, scroll style, in a hand-stitched leather tube much like a round document or print case. While the leather used may vary, here is what it looks like:
If you prefer, you can make only the down payment for the rod at the Holidays. The normal policies apply here, where the second half would be due only after the rod is completed, giving you at least a few more months to pay the rest of the rod price. Naturally, I would mail you hard copy receipts for any payments you made for your records.
Of course, if you know what they're going to want their fly rod to be, that's fine, too. I'll mail you the special certificate so you can present them with it while they wait for their rod of a lifetime to be made!! A custom fly rod is sure to put a smile on any angler's face!! Please contact me to discuss a special fly rod for a very special angler.
If you need any help picking out that perfect gift for your special angler, please feel free to contact me & I'll be happy to help you out.
I hope your season is merry & bright!!
