About Me

I started steelheading in the late 70's using spinning equipment. All the spinning blanks at the time were pretty beefy and some builders were using much smaller diameter fly blanks with spinning components. I could'nt pay for those high dollar blanked custom rods so I built with blanks I could afford. I tied my own fly...I say fly and not flies because the hot ticket at the time was a spring wiggler pattern. A little squirrel tail, chenille and hackle and thats all I tied. I got away from steelheading for a while but my younger brother got me back at it only this time with a flyrod in hand and the fever hasn't spiked yet. I have it worse now than I ever had. Since getting the fly rod fever I think the only time I picked up a spinning rod was to jig for walleyes. I have come to enjoy all my fishing more since using one of the flyrods I create and the different flies I now tie.
I am not the best rod builder but I like all the room I have for improvement and learning.
