Midrum For Sale

I have been cleaning up the shop and have decided to get rid of some Mildrum's that have been hoarding.

The ME's are on the left. For perspective there is a size 10 SRMC on the right and a size 9 mm Struble agate. $15 each for either size 9 or 10's.

Rod For Sale SOLD

I have an 8'3" quad for sale. It will handle both a 4 weight line and 5 weight line. It is completely hollow built. It has a beautiful Koa spacer with bright hardware. This rod is used and probably about 5 yrs old. It has my traditional satin finish with tan wraps with red tipping. This rod has a wonderful medium to medium fast action like I try to achieve in all of my rods. Price is SOLD plus shipping/insurance. Feel free to contact me with questions.

Remembering Tom Morgan

At the end of the year the TV stations always run the shows about the previous year. It made me think about 2017. For a number of years we would visit Tom at his home for lunch and discuss building rods. In the pictures below we met Tom at the El Western one year to do some fishing. The El Western was the motel Tom's parents owned when he was growing up. It is probably the coolest motel I have ever been too!

While discussing rods, Tom was always very open about what he did and the processes by which he did them. I always appreciated that about him. I think when bamboo rod builders talk with one another and they are honest and open about building there is a respect that is developed.

I didn't know him as well as many others did, but I knew him enough to look back through my pictures and smile when thinking about this particular day.
