I lost count on the fiberglass and graphite rods I've built over the past 30 years, 60+ bamboo rods so far....but helping Eric build Ezra's fly rod is the best yet! Spending time with Ezra and his family is far beyond rod building, it's about family, love and hope. Watching Ezra watch his rod being worked on will stay with me forever. I wait for the day when we meet again to watch Ezra cast and catch a fish with his special rod. It was my pleasure helping with this awesome project, all the best Ezra!
