It's the end of the year and I have one more trip planned. I'm going to run down and hair lip a few. I've been on vacation this week but guess what!! Yes I've been sick. Shrek!! I wonder if they will let me say I was sick at and I can take the sick days next week?? Yeah right!! I wouldn't even try that. I'll take some pictures of my trip and post them.

I really want to thank all of you for letting me part of your life. It gives me great pleasure in meeting you and building something that you dream up. Thank you VERY MUCH!!

Roaring River 11/25/16

It's the day after Thanksgiving and Marshall and I went to Roaring River for Catch and Release. It started out around 40 and the sun came out. Wonderful morning!!!! I caught about 30+ fish. The killer worm was the ticket like always!!! We fished a couple hours and took off. Here is some proof!!

Hello again,
It's been way to long. It's been a interesting summer and now fall is about gone also. Rod orders have been good. I've been really busy at work and with my girls. Band season is about over for both and Catch and Release season in starting next week at the State parks. This is the best time of the year for me!! I love it. I took off for next Friday. Yeah!! I'll give a report when I return. I'll take some pictures also. I hope everyone is doing well and getting to fish. Later!!

Well the time is here again to try and remember to write 2016. What a pain! What isn't a pain is looking forward to a great year of rod building and fishing. I didn't do much fishing this year which is sad. I'm going to change that this year. Sell, fish, sell, fish! You get the idea. Thanks for a great year. My blanks sold well and I got a lot of really great feed back. I'm not raising my prices this year but I will need to next year. I can't catch a break sometimes with my pricing. Here's a picture of my girls and I on our last outing!! Julia and I caught a lot of fish. I love my girls!!
