I take rod building very, very seriously, but I don't feel the need to be too serious about myself

So, let's get going

Here You Are

If you're interested in split cane fly rods, chances are you've looked at many other rod maker and rod component sites, YouTube channels, forums and such like because the Google algorithm is not going to toss you this way right off the bat.

That is to say, you've probably already got something on the ball

Since You Are Here


New Build

7' 6" 5 wt Payne 101 Taper



9' 0" 7/8 wt

A butt and mid section - circa 1950 -  that were in bad shape.

Made a new tip section based on Gillum 7662 Taper

Hex Rod Case

This one is made from cypress - it's a softer wood than I realized but fetching nonetheless.

Based on the design in Wayne Cattanach's book.
