Great Year!!

Well this year has run it's course and we are looking at 2012 square in the face. I can't believe how fast this year has passed. I wanted to take this time to thank everyone for their business and how great it has been emailing and meeting my new friends. I've added several new country's that I've shipped to and really great people there. This year I've built about 78 custom rods and I don't have any idea how many blanks I've sold. I've got a lot to be thankful for. I've been blessed with 4 beautiful, smart and loving girls. My 3 daughters and my wife make my world go round!! I thank God everyday for them. Thank you all and I hope God blesses you all as much as he blesses me!!

I'm back!!

Sorry to be away so long. I've had a very busy year so far. I got a couple pictures from Bodfish Boatworks and had to post them. Very nice build with one of my 1wts. NICE!!!!

I really want to thank all my friends that I've met this year and all the returning friends. You all make me feel great about my blanks and rods. It's getting close to the Christmas shopping days so don't wait too long. I was shipping rods next day delivery last year to make it before Christmas day. Please don't wait and be one of those last second shoppers. I'll always take care of you but I don't want to have both of us nervious!!!

I got some emails from my good friend Rick Osborn and he's been catching some real hog rainbows on Taney the last month. I wish I could go out to play with him!! I can't wait for the browns to run! I'll have my 9' 6wt ready to go for some night fishing!! Hope everyone is doing well!!!! tight lines!!!

Fly Rods!!

Well I'm getting my new size of blanks in this week. I wanted to have a great size for the Taneycomo night scene. So Starting Right now!!!! I have a 9' 4pc 6wt for sale!!! It's perfect size for the monsters that swim around at night on Taney! They will be the same costs as the 5wts both in the blank and the Custom Rod. It's been a really great year so far for blank sales and for Custom rod sales. Thank you all!!! I'm enjoying some slow time right now with only 5 rods to build. I'm trying to spend as much time as I can with my ladies. Time well spent. I hope everyone has had a great year so far. I pray that the gas prices go down so we can get out and do something. Pull your head out Oduma!!!!

March Madness!!!

I'm telling you all "Thank you" It's been a wonderful month so far. The 1wts have been flying out the door. The rod sales have been very good!

I've got a friend in Japan that has bought a lot of blanks. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. So lives about 300 miles from where the earth quake hit but felt everything very clearly. He said that there's going to be bigger counts of the dead than what they are saying.
I don't know how they can say they were prepared for this. Terrible.

Keep fishing and praying!!!

Get Ready for Spring

Hey, It's been a great start to the year. Sales have been strong even when the weather stunk! I'm looking forward to spring getting here. I've got a lot of rods to build and loving it. I just shipped 6 blanks to Japan to a very nice man. He sent me pictures of some of the streams that they fish and they look a lot like our streams here in Missouri. Some time I would love to hand deliver some blanks to him! I hope everyone is gearing up for spring so let me know if you need anything. Tight Lines!!!!

Rod sales!

The rods are still selling good! Thank you Lord! The 7'6" 1wts are really hitting the trail in built rods and blanks! These blanks are really sweet. They cast like a dream! I've been shipping rods left and right. I'm still pondering the reel sales. The reel that I like has 6 ball bearings and will spin forever smooth! I'm wondering if I should offer a extra spool? I haven't been fishing in months but snow and cold have been ugly! We have had 13 inches and are expecting 4 more on top. It's suppose to be in the fiftys next week. Heat wave!!!! Keep fishing and catching!!!!
Here's a pick of a nice fish caught at Roaring River last year.

Great Start to 2011!!!


What a start to the new year!! The sales have been really great!! I've been shipping to all over the world already! Brazil, Singapore, UK, France, Italy and to Denmark!!! And a few to the states!! The blanks are moving also! Thank you Lord!! I've been really blessed! I've been looking to try and add a reel to my line up also. I've been looking and it's a rough road to find just what I want. I'm kinda picky and I hope it shows in my rods and blanks! I've got 6 rods to wrap right now. I haven't even been able to go fishing yet this year. I'll make time soon I hope. We've been fighting sickness at home for a while. We're doing better now.

I'm needing feedback on the reels. I want to know what everyone wants in a reel and can't find. One thing I want is a silent reel. No clicking no drag sound!! Let me know at
