So, in the last few months, I've changed some things around on the the website. I hope these changes help to make this site more user-friendly for those who have questions.
There's now a new page on this site: "Tackle Tips". This page contains information about maintaining & how to make simple repairs to a fly rod. Using this information will show you how to fix your fly rod, or how to avoid needing repairs in the first place.
"Designing Your Custom Fly Rod" was made to walk you through ever aspect of your potential custom fly rod. If you're looking to buy a new rod - even one from a large manufacturer - then read this page to become a more informed buyer. You'll read about everything from reel seats to tip tops & garner food for thought about every aspect of a fly rod.
You can learn more about how I approach rod making on the "Rod Making Philosophy" page. Here I explain how I look at my responsibilities as a rod maker & how I respect all clients & potential clients. I also offer advice on that page about how to choose a rod maker & how to find your first bamboo fly rod.
If you have questions about what to expect from me when you contact me about making your custom fly rod & the other services I offer, you'll want to check out the "Frequently Asked Questions" page. Hopefully this will give you a sense of how you & I work together & let you know that I'm available to all anglers for advice, help, or just to say hello.
More than anything else, I want folks to enjoy the sport of fly fishing. I want to provide you with a level of service higher than you'll find anywhere else. Hopefully this website will help me do that & I'll be adding more info to these pages often. To that end, I'd love to hear from you. Let me know what you think about this site & anyway you think I can improve it. Of course, you should always feel free to contact me anytime to discuss all things fly fishing.
