t is important that I discuss with my customers their casting style and types of fishing that they tend to do before I make them a rod. Everyone has a wrist and arm that is educated differently depending on their casting style and how they fish. Everyone likes different rods for different reasons.

I require a $300 non-refundable deposit, and will give my customers an approximate month of completion of the rod ordered. The remainder of the dollar amount is due upon completion.

Bamboo fly rods are very time consuming to create. They are useful artifacts that represent sometimes hundreds of hours of work but are meant to fish with for a lifetime. Each rod represents a very large window of time. There are no time-saving shortcuts.

“If time was something I could buy, I would purchase chunks of it and go fishing.” ~C.J. Bova
