Sage ESN 2100
This has been a very popular Sage build over the years. This rod can pull out monster trout, yet is forgiving and nimble when nymphing. And it can dry fly fish if conditions ask for it. The rod was fitted with single foot guides (some guys preffer them) and...

Sage Mod
Finished another of the very popular Sage Mod series. Kept it light and simple. It's not that fish care about what rod you are using, but this rod with its striking appereance and fishability will turn some heads in the stream soon. HA! Thanks for looking!

The "thought" rod.
Yes, you've guessed well. This is another Tom Morgan 803 build and my last one in stock unfortunately. My intention was to fish this rod in the gin clear streams of Romania this season. It could be a keeper or it could not. For me, even if a rod is highly c...

Happy New Year everyone! Hope we'll all have a better year than the one that just passed. I don't pride myself with numbers of rods built, but I do take pride in the quality of the builds. I built this beautiful Steffen rod for a good friend of mine. The 7'...

Morgan 8'#3
Finally finished another Tom Morgan fiberglass rod after a very long wait on a couple of 803 blanks. This is still the older color-finish, but hopes are high that the new coated burgundy blanks will arrive in the upcoming year. This is an understated, timel...

Swift Epic 376
A first Mocha 376 I built for a cool guy in Germany with whom I fished last summert. I will probably get to cast this rod next summer. Until then not much feedback on how it casts, but feels super nice. Kept the fitting of this blank really simple as usual....
