Well the new year is off to a very busy start here in the rod shop. For those of you waiting for your new custom rods, they're in production & coming along. I just finished gluing up a bunch of bamboo blanks & soon will be varnishing them & mounting hardware to make them into completed fly rods.....
In addition to the beautiful fly rod shown below that's listed on the Available Rods page, I've got more rods on the way. Soon I should have a demo rod listed there for your consideration. It's a sweet rod that I can't wait to show you, so keep checking back often.
The leather has been moving through the shop as well. More fly wallets are now available & there's more on the way, too!!
The sewing machines have been working overtime as well, cranking out even more rod bags, rod tubes, & reel cases.....
To that end, were working on having a complete inventory of fishing bags made up. These are some of the finest bags you can wear along the stream. I'd easily put them in a league with bags costing twice as much. Check them out on the Accessories page for more info. I think you'll enjoy fishing with one of these bags over your shoulder.
It's never too early to start thinking about this up coming fishing season. If there's something I can help you with to get ready, please feel free to contact me anytime.
