About Me


I have been fly fishing all over the country for the past 30 years.  About 8 years into fly fishing, I had a desire to try to build my own bamboo fly rod in 1999 and have been building rods ever since then.  I started out making Hexagon (6 sided) rods then Quadrate (4 sided), lastly  Rectangle Quad rods, these rods can be built solid or hollow.  I build most of my machinery and jigs to make the fly rods.   I design a lot of my own tapers for Quad, Rectangle Quad, and Hexagon rods.  I have been building hollow rods which I like quite a lot.  Obviously hollow rods are much lighter, but the swing weight is much different than a solid rod.
