In the pages below, you are invited to read about what motivates me to build fly rods out of bamboo, the reasons why I design and construct the rods in the manner that I do, and some of the influences present in the rods I make.  You’ll learn about the rationale behind the different methods of construction I employ, such as differing joints, finishes, and hollowbuilding.  You’ll also be able to read about my personal and rodmaking philosophy, as well as a few words from anglers for whom I’ve been fortunate to build rods.  I hope these pages help you to gain a better understanding of who I am, and what considerations I put into your fly rod.
