Our dear friend, Olivia Elia, is not only a fantastic bamboo fly rod builder, she is also an accomplished Luthier, working at Preston Thompson Guitars here in Sisters, Oregon. She was just profiled as an “up-and-coming” young guitar builder in Acoustic Guitar Magazine. They even chose to highlight her on the cover of the most recent issue. We’re so proud of what Olivia has accomplished, both in her bamboo rod building and her guitar building. Check her out in the November/December 2022 Issue of the magazine.
