Glen didn't sell to DO, Tom Morgan did. I've never really talked with him on this directly, but it seemed to me that he enjoys the craftsman side of it more than the headaches of the business. I think the death of Winston (my favorite rod company since I first came to Twin Bridges in 1986) seems to be a larger symptom of the passing times. I feel like a grumpy old man, and I am only 32. Glen and his crew are great guys. When I was a 20 year old fishing hack, he'd take time to go out behind the shop with me and taught me quite a bit about both casting and fishing--despite being busy at home and with work. I was lucky enough to carry around a whole bundle of prototype rods to fish with that summer, and my folks ended up buying me a rod when I graduated from college. I have always been grateful for guys like Glen--guys that take snot nosed suburban kids like me under their wings and show them a different way of seeing things. He's made a tremendous impact on a lot of people's lives, and has done it just by being himself. I wish the whole crew success, and will continue to buy rods from them as my budget allows. As for Winston? Well, I think those rods started to go downhill about the time they started putting boron in them. Give me an old IM6 or a Tom Morgan favorite anyday. Probably have to go out and horde them now, I really doubt we'll ever see those soft-tipped, slow action rods on the market again.
