Rods on Hand
Once in a while I manage to sneak
in enough time to build a rod or two to keep on hand.
If you're so severely infected with "bamboo-itis"
that you simply cannot wait, this is the place for
you. I try to keep this section of the site up to
date. Any rods described below are available now.
7' 2/1 4 weight Demo rod based on a Payne taper. Very lightly flame toned, medium fast action. Clear wraps. Smallish straight cigar grip. Aluminum downslide seat over cork spacer. BAMBOO ferrules. Made for demonstration purposes
6' 2/2 2 weight This tiny rod features very light cane with clear wraps with jasper highlights, a small cigar grip above a custom slide band reel seat. It will be perfect for tiny streams filled with brookies or cutthroats. New, lawn cast only. $1695
8' 3/2 3 weight One of my popular tapers, this little rod features made features light olive wraps, tipped red. The grip is cigar shaped. The handle hardware is blued to almost black. The shafts are built hollow to make the rod lighter and the action more crisp. This fast taper always impresses. Great for fishing small flies to educated trout and capable of handling large fish.
