Media: Mixed Media Wood

I have been building bamboo rods since 1993. My passion is to create custom bamboo rods that are both aesthetically beautiful and a dream to cast. I see them as tools for creating fishing memories. My work has been recognized by Gov. Jeanne Shaheen & the State of N.H., The Smithsonian Institution, The Fuller Art Museum, The American Museum of Fly Fishing, and many local fishing clubs. One of my favorite quotes summarizes my thoughts: "I shall now confess to you that none of those three trout had to be be-headed or folded double to fit their casket. What was big was not the trout, but the chance. What was full was not my creel but my memory." -Aldo Leopold
I couldn't agree more.
