I've seen a few things on the Internet lately that I should address.  My rod blanks are made just for me only. In the early years of building I did use Sevier blanks and really liked them. It got hard to keep up with orders so I started to look for help in designing and caring my own blanks. I was lucky enough to meet one of the engineers that helped start Sage. He helped me to get what I think is the perfect IM6 blank. I'm forever in his debt. So just so everyone knows these are my blanks made just for me.

I pray that everyone has a great holiday season!!!!!
I also want to thank everyone for a great year! !!

Wow!! It's been a long time sense I've posted. I'm going to try and do better. It's been a good year and I can't believe it's almost Christmas. My youngest daughter and I fished all the state parks here in Missouri this year and it's been the best!! We called it the Grand Slam of fishing this year. I'm getting ready to start selling a great 10' 4 piece Nymphing rod. I call it the Ninja. Everything is BLACK on it. Over sized single foot eyes and a full cord grip. It's selling great in Canada. Very light for a 10' rod.

2013 in review

Happy New Year everyone!!! It's been a GREAT year!!! 134 fly rods sold and I don't know how many blanks!!! I've sold all over the world but I've added many new places this year. Ukraine, Germany,  Cez Republic, Chile and many more. I'm thrown back every time I see a new country!! It's a honer to build them for you!!! I've met so many great people that it overwhelms me. Thank you for your emails and pictures and kind words. Keep the pictures coming!! I Thank God for giving me this great hobby and all my new friends around the world!!!!
Now for the year end. I've reviewed my costs for the components and blanks for my rods and there will be a price increase. For my existing customers I will honer my 2013 pricing for one year.(2014). My prices are still really good for a custom rod and they are really great rods to fish with also but I just can't build them and not make a profit. Thanks and I hope you understand. Thank you!!!!!
