Retirement announcement.   Over a thirty seven -year period my life - 45 years if you include the years I built rods as an amateur, has centred around designing fly rods based on my fishing experiences and my concept of how a fly rod should perform. Luckily a good number of customers seemed to agree with my ideas on rod design - and since 1977 I’ve been running a successful business building fly rods of the highest quality. Thank you to you all. Everything has to end at some time though. The years spent building rods seems to have passed so quickly!   I have now reached retirement age and principally due to the onset of osteoarthritis in my hands, I feel that it is time to retire from full time rod making. As of March 2014 I will not be taking any more general orders for rods or blanks.

Rod Repairs; On a part time basis - I will where possible, still offer a repair service for Norwich rods. Some of the early models can no longer be serviced though as many of these where made before I produced my own rod blanks, but I will do my best for you. 

My rod building supplies business & Bonefishing holidays business will also continue. Most of my website is still online if you wish to browse it.
