Don't forget to get your federal tax id number and any state and local tax numbers and permits. When you start making and selling fishing tackle you are a manufacturer in the eyes of the IRS and...
Takes me from 90 to 100 hours to make a rod. However, I make everything except the guides and sometimes I make them. This does not include drying time for glue and finish.
Bamboo is king for...
I have a pair of Simms Guides that I bought in 1998 that are still going. I use these for winter steelhead fishing because they are big enough to put some clothes under them. The...
I have been using glow material for years. At one time all you could get was a paint from Herters. Much more variety in materials today.
Sleep on the floor.
As a bamboo rod maker I have a simple warranty. If it is my fault I will fix it but you are responsible for shipping both ways. If it is your fault I will still fix it but I will charge you for the...
I could see all of the top when I made this thing. Don't know what happened.
Didn't know there was a name for it. 60 years ago we called it just plain fishing. Bamboo (cane) pole 10 - 15 feet long with a piece of level fly line tied to the end of it, 6 - 8 feet of leader and...
I am pretty sure the 2014 all species non-resident Michigan licence is going to $76.00.
I have tied at this show for several years and must say that this years show was the best ever. Thanks to the Buckeye United Fly fishers for putting on such a great show.
See you there Jack. It is -16 here this morning so a little rain will be welcome.
I will be shipping these parts and the taper for a 12' spey rod to one of our heroes who has taken up making bamboo rods.
I will see you there Brad.
I will have my 13 foot once a splice joint three piece, then glued together one piece, then a #30 butt ferrule added two piece spey rod with me. This rod is...
Do the whole hide. It is easier than messing with bits and pieces.
1. Wash the raw hide in a plastic garbage can in warm water with 1/4 cup Dawn dish washing detergent and a big double handful of...
Why don't all of the folks that don't like CO2 in the atmosphere and global warming contribute to a solution and quit breathing both CO2 and hot air. The arctic has been ice free before and so has...

Will the real Wooly Bugger please stand up?
This is picking fly poop out of pepper!
Gartside Sparrow light to dark, small to large.
Perhaps this will answer what a Muddler should look like.
Sorry about the sideways view.
Keep it simple. 7 weight rod, nymph taper fly line, and about 7 feet of 10# Maxima for a leader. Go fishing.
I don't usually look into posted videos but something told me to watch this one. Thanks Dave for posting it.

Get your agate guides from Joe Arguello. Joe makes the best agate I have ever seen. You will not be disappointed.
Ah yes, the "i" before "e" except after "c" rule. Yes I do like your fly tied with "aftershaft".
