I would like to give thanks for all the support and orders that I have had this year. I have been very busy with orders and considering the economy I feel very fortunate for that. I am up to about an 8 month wait right now.
The pics below are of a rod that is about to go out. It is a 8'2" 4 weight. This taper is based on a Leonard I found once. I made it for a customer and he really liked it. Sometime after that he broke the rod. In order to make sure that he always had one with him he ordered two of them. This rod has a beautiful Koa reel seat insert. I am going to start offering this insert as a choice. I still feel that $750 for a one tip rod is a great deal.
