)Just what I was looking for. My Dad and Brother-In-Law did some custom rod building. Now, thanks to your site, I have the head start I needed. Looking forward to re-finishing one of my Dad's old custom rods. You showed me how to color the blank and replace the guides. Now I need to do some more research on the fancy threading and viola!...I will get his rod back in the boat fishing again. Best Regards, Remy

Earlier this year I attended the Capitol Region TU show and bid on a beautiful, 2 tipped fly rod. Amazingly, my bid won the rod. Later this summer I plan to do some fishing in appropriate settings and will report back to you on how I like it. There was nothing with the rod to indicate the weight line it was designed for but I am guessing perhaps 2 and 4wt. Perhaps you could provide some additional guidance. I too worked for the federal govt but retired 10 years ago after 22 years as an officer in the USPHS. Most of my time was spent in New Mexico working with the Indian Health Service. Presently I work half-time at our local hospital and try to get out fishing as often as I can (not enough). Many years ago I made several fly rods but never really got into the details of design. I still use a Sage blank I made and an old 3M graphite that has the metal ferrules. It is fun but I still prefer to use the tools - not make them. Glad you are happy doing both and hope you get to test your products often. Let me hear from you - UncleRx

I own Ely Custom Rods and have been guiding boat trips to boarder lakes along the B.W.C.A. near Ely Minnesota for the past seven years.My goal this year is to provide a great setting for fellow rod builders to get together and share their knowledge,stories and skills(fishing).If you've ever seen or read about this area of the country you need to give it a try.Hope you have contact with many other builders and can pass the information along. Thanks A. Fredericksen,Ely C. Rods.

It is so nice to find people like yourself to share this , and that is what makes our sport what it is. If you ever get to my neck of the woods I owe you a trip on our beautiful Barnegat Bay. I'll be sure to tell my friends. Thanks, Ken

Hi Ken, I've been frustrated on how to refinish a blank after sanding. I always ended up with small bubbles or some other small imperfections. I decided to try the Flex Coat thin mixture and thin in with denatured alcohol to almost a water thickness. Spread it by hand using a lint free sponge pad which is actually part of a 4 x 4 medical bandage. I soak the pad and wipe it from end to end by hand. It looked great. Have you tried this? What is your best method? A brush just don't work for me. Harold

Enjoyed your website- some good information. We're always learning. Especially those of us not afraid to share. Using the soda straw to help with tape removal on butt wraps is a good idea. I'll have to try that. I use double stick carpet tape on each end to hold the threads, with a layer of masking tape underneath. The straw would make removal much easier. I can't believe you do those butt wraps so fast. Slow down, you'll make more money! It takes me 10 hours or so to do a simple closed wrap, like fish patterns, etc. I should be a rich man. Keep on wrappin'

Found you site very interesting. Just a novice at rod wrapping, and found several helpful tips. Will continue to monitor the site for additional information.

Ken, thank you for all the help you provided me with when I was completing an offshore flyrod. We all know that the big boys can wreck your mind, body, and more easily your equipment. However, if you do things professionally, and thoroughly, you will win the long fight, and by learning the know-how that you provided me, it might just make the difference between a lifelong dream into reality. Not to mention, the little hints and tips not only saved me from, making mistakes, but also many hours of frustration and aggravation. Please keep up the GREAT work!

I found your articles on rod crafting very informative. I enjoy custom rod building and have been building custom rods for about 20 years.

Ken - just wanted to thank you for the fly rod you made for my Dad. He loves it! Of course, rumor has it that there's a bamboo rod somewhere in his future... <grin>

Ken - I've waited a long time for this site to come to fruition - the wait was worth it. Your work is second to none and I will remember with fondness the day we met. Take care and keep those great designs coming.

without a doubt the BEST fishing rod home page i've ever seen. in fact, it's the only fishing rod home page i've ever seen, but that still doesn't take away from the exceptional quality and obvious attention to detail lavished on your presentation. yours is a model for all such pages...cu tomorrow!

Ken repaired a (surf) rod for me that belonged to my Grandfather. It meant a lot to me and to be honest I was a little nervous about how it would turn out. He did a fantastic job with it. He put new wrap on it, re-finished it, and put new line guides on it. It turned out great. My Grandfather would be proud. Thanks again.

I want you to know I am still accessing your site and learning very much from it. Last time I signed the guest book I hadn't done my first complete rod. I made an ultralight and using Dale Clemens' books, wich you reccomended, along with your information it came out fantastic. When others have seen it they want one too. I get most of my parts from a local rod builder and he has shown a willingness, actually more like an eagerness to share information and help me along, just like you do with this site. It is great having experienced builders so willing to help. Thank you and keep me informed of updates

Great site, I added it to my favorite fishing links and I will also add a link to your site on mine. If you have a banner it would be great if you could forward it to me for use on my site. I will be back often to check on updates. Curtis
