A custom fishing rod says many things about its owner. It marks the person as an angler who takes his or her sport seriously. It also says that one places quality and craftsmanship at the top of their list and appreciates the best; demonstrating not just pride of ownership for the individual angler but more importantly pride of performance in their equipment.
A fly fishing rod needs to do several jobs. Firstly it must cast the line which requires strength and spring so that it can act like a catapult to shoot the line great distance when needed - or very accurately and gently when thats the order of the day. Secondly it must retrieve the line which requires sensitivity so you can feel the line as it is recovered and know when a fish takes the fly. Thirdly it must fight the fish which requires the ability to cushion the leader and soak up the shocks as the fish runs and jumps. Finally it must be transportable which means that it must be capable of being manufactured in sections which come together to act as a whole when assembled.
