Well, I won’t bore you all with the details but the company that I worked for bought me out 3 months early! I am now officially a full time rod builder! This is exiting and has only been 2 weeks but I have had the time to take care of a bunch of those projects that have been on the back burner!
So what’s new… well I am trying to get ready for the flyfishing show in Denver on January 4th! Hope to have a couple of rods maybe even a quad! And a handfull of my new Agate Stripping Guides, I have now added size 9 to my offering! I have these in Red, Amber solid colors as well as some really nice, transparent banded/mottled ones, these are really nice!
And new from the R&D department of the J.E. Arguello Rod Co…. I had a customer ask me if I had ever taken a carbide insert from an existing guide and mount it in a low profile frame! Well I have to say that I had never done this! But like I have always said I am always up for a challenge! So… well a picture is worth a thousand words!
Well whadda you think? Not bad if I do say so myself!
I am really excited to have the time to do what I truely love. There is more to come as I have a few more Irons in the fire! Keep in touch to see what’s new.
