Proudly celebrating 26 years in rod making and education


"You know, there's never a time when I'm not fishing - just days when I can't do it in the water."

The Gentleman's Society of Angling by Jay Hill

A river runs thru both my parent's family farms. The Broad

River on one and the Hudson on the other. Perhaps it was

because of that experience I have a deep respect for

tradition. With that said, I don't think that there is a finer

example of tradition in the world of fly-fishing than a

finely crafted bamboo fly rod. It combines craft, time and

tradition into something that you can literally "hold in

your hand". Broad River Bamboo Fly Rods are objects that

meet that criteria. Something that demonstrates respect

not only of tradition but for all the master rod makers that

have come before. I take great pride in every rod that passes

through my shop and across my work bench.
