Rod of the week!

I am at approximately an 8 month wait. New rod purchases require a $200 non refundable deposit to cover about half of the upfront costs.

Here is a picture of an 8'4" 3 weight that will be going out very shortly. This has my new light weight reelseat. Its amazing how much some reel seats weigh. This will save the rod about 1/5 of an ounce.

Pic of the 8'4" 3 weight

I received this picture from Billy Teo over in Singapore and his Carpenter Bros Rod the 8'4" 3 weight. This is a 2.5 lb Temensis. He says the rod did great! Thanks for the pic Billy.

Labor day weekend

We had a great weekend fishing down on the White River in Arkansas! We caught enough fish to keep it interesting. They were running a lot of water and we had to take to the boat. I was surprised how many people were flyfishing in those conditions.

We bought a new Fleetwood Evolution 4 camper and it was our maiden voyage!

Here is my cell #, some how I didn't have it listed before, 816-769-7961. I am generally available after 3 pm daily.

Right now I am working on a 8'4" 3 weight that doesn't have a home yet and I am secretly hoping that it won't. That would mean I would get to keep it and fish it. :-)

Here is a picture of a rod that I finished for a customer in Michigan. It is a 7' 4 weight based on a Edwards Signature taper.
