Awesome Components!

After multiple builds, the two 1090’s currently being crafted are coming together amazingly well. While still a novice rodmaker, the quality of the components help my burgeoning skill set craft an end product that one can be proud to use or gift to someone special. These two will be put to the test the first week of August on the Marmelos River in the Amazonas State in northwestern Brazil.

1090 c graphite fly rod build kit

my first foray into building a rod was with this kit. The kit made it very easy and enjoyable to build the rod, making it so that i want to build another. i am very much looking forward to my next epic rod build. Thank you for enabling this new obsession/passion.

Great blanks

I purchased the 1090c after already having the 890c kit. Very happy with the blanks. I will shortly purchase a 590c or the Graphene kit. The 10wt has come up a treat, looking forward to casting at Longtail tuna this season.

Ready to wrap 1090C

I am really satisfied with the quick service and shipping to South Africa. The quality of the blank, cork handles and reel seat is excellent, can't wait to start the build!
