6 1/2ft  rods
One of my favorite Tapers. this guy will perform all day without tiring the angler.  Casts like a dream.  I build it in 3wt, 4wt and 5wt.

6 1/2 ft rod
This one is getting ready to be shipped to the new owner. 

grip and reel seat
Another rod heading out the door.  This one had a down locking reel seat.  It's a 4wt

Traditonal looking wraps and an aluminum reel seat give this rod a "golden age" feel.

6 1/2ft rod
This is my personal 6 1/2ft 5wt. 
One look at the cork tells you why I don't like to make my own grips.  This is supposedly very good cork AAA or better. 

reel seat
As you can see by the handle, I fish it a lot.  I bought the sliding band at the Sow bug Roundup, in Mountain Home, AR.

The legacy of the bamboo rod.  Classic flys and a well worn Pflueger reel.
