News From Singapore!

Billy Teo has sent along some more photos of his conquests in Singapore. Billy and his buddies catch some serious fish. The rod in the photos is a 8'2" 4 weight that I sold him and its based off of a Leonard taper I found. The fish in the pics is the ever elusive Temensis. I don't know much about this fish except they get big!

I have probably sent half of the rods I made in the past two years to Singapore. Thanks Billy and friends!

I have a good backlog right now and will be busy until around May of next year. I am currently working on carbon fiber ferrules for three piece rods. I hope to have some pics to post within the next couple of weeks. My goal in this endeavor is to be able to make a 8'5" 5 weight right around 3 oz. I don't think I have ever put my email address on this blog yet so here it is if you ever have any questions

I just returned from a family fishing trip. I am learning about these trips that it usually is more family than fishing! However, I tried out a new rod I made and fell in love with it. Its a medium fast 8'4" 4 weight that weighs 3.6 oz and is hollow built. I look forward to the day that my boys and I are all trying new rods out!

Also, Scott Zieske sent along some photos of his Carpenter Bros. 7'3" 3 weight and his Carpenter Bros. reel. This rod was my 3rd rod to make and brings back good memories! I have it on my things to do to go out and visit Scott in South Dakota and see what the fishing is like there.
