Rodmaking

The making of split cane rods has a history going back over a hundred years and has included many famous names producing large numbers of rods by machine in the golden age along with many hand makers of which perhaps the most famous is Everett Garrison. Both approaches can produce good rods but what makes a great rod is the care that is spent in every stage of its design and construction. Those afflicted with a passion for cane rods are driven to seek perfection and within these few pages I hope to describe and illustrate my own response to this very powerful affliction.

The Rodmakers story

Notice

As of May 2021 I will be restricting my rodmaking to new single handed fly rods.

I will not be taking commissions for Coarse rods two handed rods or restorations.

This has been decided after much thought but is always open to discussion!
