Dreaming stage

Everytime I start a new bunch of rods many things flows arround my mind. In the first part of this work, I select each cane trying to listen what each piece of cane is trying to say. This part of the work, when you split the cane and them work over the nodes is very special because if you pay attention you can find a special taper for each pole.

Them the dreaming start, who will be the owner of this new rod?, where it will go? what rivers, streams will be waiting for it?... no better I will keep this one for my personal use, no again... I own many rods and I must sell these ones I can keep every new rod I made. Any rod is a particular dream and really a little part of these dreams goes with each cane that leave the shop. I know that someday I'll receive a story about the rod, fishing in some water around the world and it will refresh my memories returning my mind into his making process.

At this time five new rods are waiting for the second stage of the making, and I can assure you that I perfectly know what I can spect from each one.
Each have it's personality and each his power, my work is try to show all it's potential and bring it alive. When they got finished they will be ready to make their work, fishing of course, any rod that leave the shop was made looking and thinking in this purpose.

Three new rods

I was working hard for the last month finishing three new rods and making some new rodmaking work into the shop. This are 3 very different rods a 7', a 7' 6" and an 8'

CF704 Classic Browntone 7' #4 2/2
This is a very special little monster. I used my GurĂº taper to make it and is fully flamed


CF704Classic Browntone

CFH805+JF 8' #5+ 2/2 Hollow Build Jaguar Flamed Series
With a lot of backbone this rod can cast the line like a cannon.



CB764 7' 6" #4 2/2 Traditional Blondes Series
This is a very delicate rod, it cast like a lady but with full authority.



Just to share with all of you my last work.
