Hexagon Bamboo Fly Rods

Hexagon rods are my traditional six-sided rods. They are made of six strips and are precision milled. There are many classic tapers available for this rod, I also have my own custom tapers available. These hexagon rods can be built solid or hollow. I offer custom reel seats including the reel seat shown in the picture, which is walnut filler and nickle silver hardware with rope knurling. I can also do blueing on the hardware. These can be made as Flame cane or Blonde rods. See Tapers link

There are so many tapers, that there are endless possibilities. Here are a few.

1. 8′ 3-pc. 5-wt. off an E. W. Edwards 1930 rod is a delicate rod. Casts close and cast far. Nice rod with an impressive taper. Best 3 pc. rod I have ever cast.

7. 7′ 4″ 4/5 wt. (smooth, delicate – very nice. I use this taper on my personal rod that I fish 95% of the time. I primarily use for fishing sulphers and other fly emergers except weighted nymphs on Spring Creek and Fishing Creek. It has progressive action and is a Payne taper that is shortened .

A friend is the original owner of the rod that I mic’d that is a model 18.
