He goes by “WIHEXROD” on the Classic Rod Forum where we communicated via PMs. I bought several sets of rod blanks and a finished tip section for a total price, so I don’t know what he might charge for one rod blank,

Re: Sharpes of Aberdeen Cane Rod Blanks

This post severely needs photos. . . . my wet fly / spider fishing is virtually all done with cane rods as I firmly believe that there's a distinct difference in the feel when trout fishing with a cane rod . . .

After a few years, this company decided that they would no longer sell fishing rods (they were in another outd...

Re: Spider fishing video.

Back in 2016, Iexchanged a couple e-mails with Luke Bannister regarding North Country Spiders and he sent me a few pics of his "chewed up Spiders" used in the video and then tied a few heavily hackled spiders kinda like his.

Re: Custom Leaders - My next adventure

Ever since I bought and read Oliver Kite's book "Nymph Fishing in Practice" (quite a few years ago!), I started tying my own leaders. Last week, I put together 5 more leaders for an upcoming trip to Michigan's Au Sable River. Have been using Maxima Ultragreen for many years ... using Oliver Kite's l...

Re: Orange Caddis

Here's a pic of the dry October Caddis I tied for a possible trip out West this Fall. These were the first 6 I tied. Those tied later look better!
