|Prices & Ordering Information
I offer you a commitment to build the best rod possible for each and every customer and strive to build
each one better than the last one. I promise that no shortcuts will be taken in the custom fabrication of
your rod and that I will not push myself to get it done. I believe that time and patience is required for
each stage of fabrication and that “speed in production is the enemy of quality and perfection". If an
unforeseen defect is discovered in fabrication or an accident occurs, be assured that I will correct it, even
if it means starting over.
Only the best materials to be found are used in fabrication. The Tonkin Cane is hand selected and inspected
for defects and proper density for each particular rod section. My first choice for guides is from “Snake
Brand”, agate stripping guides are hand made buy J.E. Arguello rod company . I make all of my grips
and reel seat inserts from a variety of select hardwoods, ferrules are individually machined from nickel
silver bar stock for a perfect custom fit, cap and ring type reel seat hardware is designed and fabricated
from solid nickel silver bar stock for each grip. If your preference is for an up-locking or down-locking
style reel seat we have a couple options as seen below.
My rod tapers are based upon the classical designs of the Masters; Paul H. Young, Everett Garrison, Lyle
Dickerson & H. L. Leonard plus a few of my own.
