|Repairs & Restoration :
As a rod maker , I have made a commitment to all Fly fishermen/women
who fish bamboo , that not only will I build quality cane rods , but that
I will also do quality repair and restoration work on cane fly rods ,
regardless of their condition, or the maker of the rod. By doing so , the
rods of the makers many years past , can be shared on the stream with the
rods made by today's makers , and hopefully future generations can
experience the thrill of catching trout while fishing bamboo.
After an initial inspection of the rod you will be given a quote on the

What modern fly-line does my bamboo fly rod use?
All rods repaired or restored at the shop will be matched to the
correct line size for that rod , and your invoice will include a note
stating the best line size suited for your rod. If you send your reel with
your repair/restoration we can for a reasonable fee fill your reel spool
with new backing , and the fly-line sized to match your rods action. All
work is covered as our new rod guarantee policy.
