Over the years I have come to know and become friends with several other rod builders and folks in the fly fishing industry.  This year I will be collaborating with a few of these people.  The first one is with Shane Gray of Graywolf Fly Rods, whom I've come to know well, highly respect and call him a friend.  

We set up a trade of sorts since we both don't sell our blanks. I sent him a 64p and a 710-5 and in turn he sent me a 8' 4wt 3 piece and 8' 6wt 4 piece in his black s-glass.  I'm excited to be starting these builds soon and am very much looking forward to seeing what he does with my blanks.

Please contact me to reserve one of these excellent rods and be on the look out for progress reports...
