You will notice that no prices are listed and that you cannot place an order for a rod directly from the web site. A price list is available by mail upon request.

I prefer to talk directly to my customers when an order is placed to get an understanding of what they are looking for in a rod and how, and under what conditions, the rod is to be fished.

Some additional fine print you need to be aware of before placing a rod order: No customer may order more than two rods a year. A $200, non-refundable deposit is required on all orders. The balance is due upon completion of the rod. Sorry, but I cannot offer financing.

I prefer communications regarding orders be done through mail, e-mail and by telephone. Please, no personal visits unless you call first. Due to the long lead time I will contact you prior to beginning work on your rod to confirm your specifications. Should your contact information change while your rod order is pending, please make sure to notify me.
