  1. Hi Dave,
    Do you sell bamboo rod blanks?
    I would be interested in purchasing a set from you and comforted in knowing they are hand made in the USA.

  2. I have a vintage Hardy Bros. Bamboo Rod from the 50s in pristine condition. Do you know of a good source for selling this?

  3. Hello there Dave my name is john and I live in colorado and love fishing for smaller trout and bass and I would love to get a bamboo switch rod for that purpose. I think bamboo is a great material for fly rods and really love your work and I’m wondering how can I get my hands on one of these rods

  4. I own one of the last Powel built rods, bought it new in mid 70s, it is a steelhead drift rod built to fish wit a casting reel….The ferrel needs to be replaced….Can you? Would you repair.

    • Hi Tom,

      Sorry, but I don’t do rod repairs. It looks like you’re in the Portland area from you IP address. You might check with Dennis Stone (www.stonerodco.com) in McMinnville. He does repairs. Or, check with your local fly shop… I’ll bet Joel LaFollette at Royal Treatment Fly Fishing (www.royaltreatmentflyfishing.com) in West Linn could point you towards someone in the Portland area who can help you out. Dave

  5. I have a Powel drift rod build w/ casting guide….2 piece/9ft….The ferrel needs to be replaced….Can you/Will you help me out?
