I only use high-quality components to build a custom rod. There is no skimping on quality. However, this does not
 mean that you will be breaking your bank account...on the contrary. I can show you a wide range of high-quality
 components which range from extremely reasonably priced to top of the range. The choice after all, is yours.
 From rod blank to finishing colour, and everything in between.

 Give your rod an African flavour...with an indigenous wood reel seat insert. See below pics for more info.

             (Scroll down for a look at different reel seat inserts and grips)


 The components I use are from highly reputable, well-established companies, that have been in the rod-building industry
 for many years. Most of them are OEM suppliers to all the big factory rod suppliers, and this means I have the option to
 build your rod to exact factory specs. But there's no fun in that...is there? You would like your rod to stand out...Special reel
 seat, your own insert and wood of choice, a better cork grip, your choice of single foot guides or snake guides, oversized
 tips and stripping guides, unique wraps and finishes. And of course...maybe your name written on the rod...to give it that
 final personalised touch.

So when you take delivery of your own, personalised, custom fly rod...you know you can fish it hard, with confidence. You will know that it's been finished and built
with high quality components, and with the greatest care and attention to detail.

REEL SEAT INSERTS I turn and finish myself, mostly from African Woods:
