Bamboo Fly Rods and Trout

John,

I couldn't be more pleased with my 60/40/Split/Cane fly rod. I have found it to be both tastefully and skillfully done. The fit and finish is executed to exacting standards, no distractions anywhere.

It is a pleasure to own such thoughtful work. 

Wishing you the best,

Hi John, 

  Well, I finally took receipt of my rod. I went down to the  central Post Office this morning (Saturday) and managed to get the lady to search for it.
 First impressions - it arrived packed perfectly and I dont believe that customs had even opened it. You had made a build that exceeded my expectations. Congratulations.
 As it happened, I was attending a casting school today for salt water fly fishing run by the Sage and Redington importers. I let the instructor have a peep, he was most impressed and jealous as his ambition is to own a cane rod.
I think the choice of wrappings , the handle and reel seat are perfect.
John - its beautiful. perhaps even faster than I expected and I know I am going to have many enjoyable hours fishing with it. In fact, I havnt taken it apart as I am enjoying going outside and having a few casts.

John, 

Thank you for building such a quality rod. Your finish work is expertly executed, with the highest degree of subtle artistry. You are maintaining the highest standards of a “lost art” and are surely one of the next generation of rod builders destined to become a master. I highly recommend all interested anglers take a close look at your new .45 taper. Superb!

John,
I had a chance to fish the rod last night- superb action. It tossed bass bugs and streamers with power to spare. I think all in all it is a very impressive bit of craftsmanship- great fit, finish etc. and I'm really excited to be using it.
Best,
