Great web page. I'll be contacting you about a rod in the future. The bronze trout looks like a mooneye to me. Paul

I just completed the second expedition on the Manistee with the (Guide) Model 270. I am in complete amazment at the improvement of accuracy of my cast. Without question the Guide will turn enough jaws in my river. The trout that only eat when the fly rolls along side the boulder or log will be taken now with confidence. The loops cut the invisable with pure ease, only the sound of the line in noticable, Your craftsmanship and art are now extensions of my thought as I prepare for the next trout upstream. Many thanks to you! It's always a pleasure to be your host. Your Manistee Matley

jeff ... my new 'telecaster' just might be even more fun to fish with, than the 'zoot' ... and the hardy st. george jr. completes the outfit ... ofcourse, the catskill's brook trout population might disagree ... thanks again jeff ... bob w.

Friends, Wow! I am very impressed by the beauty of those sticks you are crafting! I hope to get there some time in the near future.

Jullie hebben een aantal prachtige sites gemaakt die uitnodigen om in ieder geval een split cane hengel aan te schaffen. Hopelijk krijg ik ook nog eens een mooie Wagner Rod.

Very well laid out site with good information. Hopefully, one day I will be in the position to own one of your master pieces.

Hi Jeff and Casimira, Read the article you sent to your grandpap and thought it was great. So had to log onto your website to check it out. It is very impressive and will pass along to those that I think might be interested. You both should be very proud of your accomplishments. God Bless Love, Aunt Bonnie

jeff ... i just got my new flyrod ... what can i say, its even more 'alluring' than i dared hope it would be ... and i must admit i had pretty lofty expectations when we started this project ... perhaps the only thing more fun than tossing line with this rod, was working with you over the last few months ... with warmest regards ... bob.

Hi - nice site, though I take exception with one sentence in your essay on fishing with granpa -- to say that tournament bass fishermen "pioneered" catch and release is extremely inaccurate. Mr. Lee Wulff was promoting C&R long before the tournament crowd got into it. Check out Howell Raines's "Midlife Crisis" book for a well-written and well-observed recounting the the great conversion by the bassers. Best, Flykuni.

Great looking site, great philosophy re: cane flyrods and great looking rods. I will be in touch when I'm ready to add rod #6 to my collection, which now stands at 2 Don Schroeders, 1 Bob Summers, 1 Orvis and one South Bend. BTW, in the future, I am trying to stick with rods from midwest rodbuilders.

Your site is outstanding; the photographs are crystal clear and I wasn;t deterred in the least! Your early fishing days with your grandfather and uncle is sheer delight!

Beautiful bamboo rods. I've got only one bamboo rod, a Palakona from Hardy 7/2 #5.

I am very pleased with my 6'3" 3 wt. finished by Hap Barnes of Stony Brook in 1998. The rod fishes very nicely with a DT-4-F Mastery XPS taper line and handles casting into the wind surprisingly well for a 3 wt. First time fishing in March 1999 I caught trout in the 1 to 2 lb range and the rod was great. Hope to see you at the Somerset show in January.

Yesterday in 30mph winds was my first chance to cast my new 5-6 wt 3 piece 8 footer. It casts beautifully and its craftsmanship and finish match. I believe I am your largest collector and have greatly enjoyed fishing your fantastic rods. Each time I handle one I think "I am not worthy". Can't wait for the new 6 foot 3 wt. Keep up the great work!

like your webpage almost as much as my 7'3" 4/5! Really casts nice with peach 444 dt4. Got out several times early season and landed many medium browns with fairly large nymphs and streamers. This rod casts with authority and yet displays ample sensitivity for subsurface strike detection. Friends remark that the rod finish is "like a thin sheet of glass" so precise and clear is the varnishing.See you at Somerset.Best till then!

Nicely crafted website. If the rods are half as good as the site folks would be fools not to buy.
