Bamboo Fly rod #56 on 12-2001
The South Bend restored rod arrived well packed and safely. On close inspection I must admire your craftsmanship and close attention to detail. The conficient cork handle is great. The overall effect has a very comfortable feel. I am so pleased that I have decided that you are the man to restore my heirloom split cane. I am looking forward to future business and swapping fish tales with you. Tight lines and good fishing.Dwayne Cope

"Mac...I was extremely pleased with the refinishing job you did on my Edwards Quadrate. Your attention to detail and the care you took with preserving the original inscription and wraps was very professional and highly appreciated. I will recommend you to all of my fly fishing compatriots and you certainly have my business in the future. Thanks. Bob Murphy"

He is impressed with the way the rod handles and its action. He said to express to you his pleasure in having such a well-made fly rod.I have provided the rod; now it is up to him to provide the fish, which he will enjoy doing!I thank you kindly for your work. I hope many more orders will keep you busy!Jackie

RE Southbend 49:
Received the rod Saturday.Looks good! I can't wait to get up north to fish with it. Thanks again, Tim S.

Re South Bend 291
I received the rod on Friday 10/10. I am partial to South Bend rods and I have heard that it's a bit of a crapshoot getting a good one, even when looking at the same model. Let me just say that I hit the jackpot on this rod. It is a really nice rod with a WF6 line on it. Thank you for allowing me the chance to purchase it. I have left positive feedback for you on e-bay, and I will keep an eye out for other items you have for sale.Joe T.

Re restoration:
It arrived. I like it. Thanks.I will see to it that both of my father's grandsons use this rod.
