My approach to rod making is simple. I strive to make the best rods that I can, every rod, every time. Period. Rods that are of superior design, superb in craftsmanship and timeless in aesthetic. All of my work comes with a three day inspection and a lifetime warranty on craftsmanship for the original owner.

The more input you have on the rod, the farther we get from my work.
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,
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.

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!
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.
