Finely crafted bamboo fly rods evoke a feeling of artistry, quality craftsmanship, and tradition. A well-built rod has a soul; a feeling to it that is often difficult to describe, but you know it’s there. Casting one takes you to a whole new experience level. My goal in building bamboo rods is to create the highest quality and finest casting rods I can. I also want to provide you with a fine fly fishing instrument that is crafted from the highest quality materials and components available.
My father had me fishing at the age of 4, and I had my first fly rod in my hands at about 8 years of age. I started building graphite rods in my early twenties. But, it wasn’t until a good friend put an 8’ 0” Leonard Duracane in my hands many years ago that I fell in love with bamboo. I’m honored to be able to craft fine, bamboo fly rods for other fishermen seeking the same unearthly experience I do when I cast and fish a bamboo rod.
