Chris asked me for a rod for an upcoming trip to fish for golden trout. Something special was the request. Chris has a number of custom rods so this build needed to stand out. The cork grip was fashioned with hints of red and gold cork and matching wraps to conjur up this mythical fish.
Purple he said, so purple it was. Thanks to Ernest at Perfect Guides in sourcing a beautiful Agate guide this rod has been finished in purple trim. The rod is built on our 7’ 3wt LemonGlass blank - fast glass and beauty combined.
There is always a warm feeling when, as a craftsman, you have customers coming back for more. Mike already has a number of my rods but was looking for something interesting in a 3wt. The legendary Japanese blank maker Kabuto had recently released his 8’ 3wt blank with a slow but deadly accurate action.
A very special build for our brand ambassador and his trips to Spain and beyond for large carp. The is built on our 8wt LemonGlass blank and is a perfect tool for the emerging passion for carp on the fly. The cork grip has been made up of green, yellow, brown, red and natural cork rings to evoke the carp with matching silk guide wraps.
This is a lovely pair of bamboo rods built for Hugo and his wife. Feedback from our clients is always nice to hear - this is what a happy customer sounds like: "Chris: I received the rods this morning. They are truly lovely. My wife is an artist, and she was moved by your craft! These will make for a wonderful Christmas"
Our brand ambassador Corsican Dave has been busy on a photography course and boy has it paid off. These wonderful Agate guides from Perfect Guides in Poland look amazing on a LemonGlass 7’ 3wt blank. These photos really capture the beauty of autum and the passion we have for fishing
