We also have an exclusive eight station classroom for teaching bamboo fly rod and graphite rod making classes. The classes are scheduled throughout the year and posted on our Web site under Classes. We specialize in building our bamboo fly rods from select Tonkin Bambooand top of the line components. We make three levels of bamboo rods which include our 'custom' model, our 'premium' model, and our exclusively made 'executive' models. We also produce and sell graphite rods and blanks in various lengths and sell all of the rodcomponents needed to complete your own rod. We are currently in the process of making the transition and move from our primary operations facility in Northern Virginia, to our new facility in Frankfort Michigan. For our current and past customers, we will continue to operate out of our original rod shop in Northern Virginia. We hope to be in full operation in our new facility in the Spring of 2013 and expect great things for the future.
