The bamboo rods have been very well accepted by our customers and all of us continue to enjoy making them. We will assign to customers their rod serial number based on the sequence in which we receive their order. We have started a new numbering based on the serial number, line size, and the year. Here is an example: 215-3-2017. We will continue to put individual names or inscriptions on those rods as requested by the buyers. We ask for a $1,000 deposit with the balance to be paid when we start the final assembly of your rod. The rod will normally be delivered within 4 months of the final payment. As of February 2017 we expect to deliver rods within 6-12 months of their order.
You will be notified of your serial number at the time of your deposit and the approximate delivery date of the finished rod.
We sell both graphite and fiberglass composite rods and each one is custom made to your specifications. Our typical delivery now runs 6 to 12 months. When we receive your order we will put you in our order queue and give you an estimated delivery date. Since our delivery date is several months away we are currently not asking for a deposit when the rod is ordered. When we are close to starting your rod we will ask for a $500 deposit and will give you an up-to-date delivery estimate.
Fiberglass Blanks and Rods
Our intention is to keep fiberglass blanks in stock. We will take orders and ship as they become available if we are out of stock. In addition to blanks we are also offering fiberglass rods. Each one will be custom made using the same components as our graphite rods. Our fiberglass rods are the same price as our graphite which is considerably more than typical fiberglass rods. However, our cost is the same as our graphite rods and they are just as special.

Because of a shortage of our Special Flor cork we are unable to sell cork since we use it on our rods.
We are now carrying two reels that are made locally and the design and workmanship is the very best. The SC reels won the prestigious Grays Sporting Journal Best Reel category for 2015! With all the reels available now this is outstanding recognition for the quality of their work and design. The Classic style SC, short for Spring Creek, is based on the vom Hofe style in 2 3/4 inch and 3 inch diameters. These reels have the classic click drag.
The RS, short for River/Stream, is a modern large arbor reel which is a very lightweight design with a sophisticated and durable drag. They are available in 3.25", 3.63" & 3.91" diameter spools.
It is our intention to keep them in stock and available for immediate shipment. If we are out of Hand Mills it should only be a short time before they are available. We typically keep all accessories in stock.
We accept personal checks, international money orders, wire transfers, MasterCard, Visa, and PayPal. If you made a deposit when you ordered we will notify you when we are ready to ship so you can make arrangements for the final payment.
To do a purchase by PayPal you fill out an order form indicating you want to pay by PayPal and we will send you an invoice through PayPal which you approve and the payment is made. As with credit cards your PayPal account will not be charged until the shipment is ready. The exception to this would be if you make a deposit through PayPal.
If you would like to make a wire transfer our bank name, address, and routing number will be supplied on request.
We have had some customers send their credit card information by email. We really discourage this since that is not a secure method. Please call or send the information via fax.
For the rods and reels we normally charge for shipping via the Postal Service. We have had excellent results using their services both domestically and overseas. Should you have a different preference let us know. The Hand Mills are normally shipped UPS ground in the U.S. or Canada. Overseas shipments are sent by air freight. You may also pick up your rod, reel, or Hand Mill at our shop by appointment.
