A beautiful Kabuto 8'0 5wt for Axel in Germany.

I had a request to build a copy of my personal Kabuto that has served me well for the last few years for Axel. I decided to up the ante a little from my own rod with the addition of a stunning white Agate stripping guide from Joe Arguello and the use of Snake Brand guides throughout. A lovely rod with hand turned cork grip to match!

Two blanks ready to build - will one of these be your new custom rod by GouldFish?

Fancy doing something #epic? These two blanks are looking to be built for happy new owners. An Olive 476 - a great all round rod which can be built for you for $575 plus shipping. Or step it up to the big boys league with the amazing Epic 888 in Salsa for $600 plus shipping. Rods will be set off with Snake brand guides, an agate stripping guide, Lemke reel seat hardware with a hand turned insert and a hand turned flor grade cork grips. Rods come with our signature rod bags (thanks to Mrs Gouldfish) and an aluminium rod tube Contact me for more details or share on your page if you think your friends would be interested.

Kabuto 7'0 3wt Custom fly rod for Scott by Gouldfish

This is a second rod for Scott who had originally purchased the 'LemonGlass and Lime' Gouldfish 8' 5wt. The brief was simple - make it bright! I have taken a beautiful Kabuto 7'0 3wt blank and finished it with blue guide wraps over the Snake brand guides. A blue agate stripping guide from Joe Arguello was also included to the build. The cork grip is hand turned using flor grade cork and accented with blue cork burl trim. The reel seat features Lemke hardware and an insert hand turned with a beautiful blue acrylic. As always a big thanks to Mrs Gouldfish for our signature rod bag. Tight lines Scott!

Gouldfish LemonGlass S2 7'6" 4wt custom fly rod for Jim

A very special build commissioned for Jim by his children for his birthday celebrations. Jim has recently taken up fly fishing in retirement and they thought he'd really enjoy something personalised and specially for him. The build is on a Gouldfish LemonGlass blank (rolled for us by CTS) and is is an amazingly gentle, but powerful fast fibreglass blank. The rod has been finished in Apricot silk wraps over Snake Brand guides with an Agate guide from Joe Arguello. The wraps are tipped with black. The cork grip was hand turned turned to fit Jim's hand from a mixture of marbled and flor grade cork rings. The reel seat hardware is from Lemke with a beautiful reel seat insert hand turned from a
