Hand built fly rods comparable in quality and finish to the very best of British and American fly rods. Prices from only £155.

All rods are built on the finest carbon blanks made in England, with actions to suit all anglers. The rods are finished in either rich chestnut brown, dark emerald green, deep blue, carbon grey or elegant maroon with matching whippings and top quality American style snake rings, hay fork end ring and supa-glide stripper rings.

Reel seats have a satin chrome finish with either wood or carbon spacers; the carbon spacers matching the finish of the blank. Screw in rubber buttons or fighting butts can be fitted to 9½ft and 10 ft rods if preferred. The rods are built to order and can be personalised and built to your own specification and colour scheme with names and/or initials.

Rods are supplied in a cloth rod bag and tube or in our own quality canvas covered rod tube.

All rod handles are made from the finest flor grade cork either shaped full Wells or reversed half Wells.  Full Wells are usually fitted to 9½ft and 10ft rods half Wells are fitted to 9ft and 9½ft rods. Smaller half Wells are fitted on 7ft to 8½ft rods. All my rods are named after waters in Yorkshire except the Test and the Lohrics which are very fast action rods popular on those chalk streams where tight loops and long accurate casting with dry flies is required and stillwaters when long distance casts are needed,

All types of fishing rod can be repaired and/or refurbished.
