The other day a friend & rod client sent me some photos of a rod I had made him. The photos showed the rod out in Yosemite - a beautiful place, indeed. Now, I love to get photos like that. It just makes me smile & really lifts my spirits.
After spending many hours making a rod for someone, I sometimes wonder how they & their rod are getting along. Most of us rod makers agree that we make these rods to fish, not just to be showpieces. So when I see them doing what I made them to do, it really makes me happy!!!
