I’m often asked “Why do you build so many rods if you don’t sell them? After all, you can only fish with one rod at time…”

Of course I can only fish with one rod a time, but that doesn’t mean I don’t take 2 or 3 rods with me on every trip. It also doesn’t mean that I can’t have a basement full of a dozen rods or so. I choose my rods not only based on the water I’m fishing, but also on my mood that day. One day I might choose a short, fast rod and launch my flies rapid-fire style, the next day a long, soft taper for presenting dries with grace and delicacy. Occasionally I choose a quad, penta, hepta, or some other configuration. I could never have enough rods. Even right now, I feel a desire to fish my favorite water with a spiral rod with bamboo ferrules. Unfortunately, I don’t yet have one of those, so please excuse me while I retire to my workshop and start splitting some cane..
