REEL TECH CUSTOM – Classy build on a Classic Blank

One of my customers said he had an older G. Loomis Mohogany STR 1141 blank that he has had for quite a while and he asked if I could build it for him. I was honored to be able to build on such a classic blank, not even available any more. We went over some options, and this is what he settled on…….Elegance!

Tight Lines


Got a very nice message today from my customer in Washington who recently received his Reel Tech Custom.

“The most amazing rod I have ever fished John, the performance is better than I imagined. First time I take it out and I got this nice chrome steelhead today, Im beyond happy……unbelievable sensitivity and its got great mojo…..check is in the mail for another one!”

His words and the photo made my day. I love my customers…. they waste no time breaking in their new rods in style, and keep me busy 🙂

Tight lines!!

Novemeber fun!!

Fall is my favorite time of year. The fall colors of the trees, the cooler temperatures, hunting season, and willing steelhead.
Had a great time as always with my good friend Jon Geyer yesterday. We had a nice relaxing fun day on the river landing 9 steelhead on some Reel Tech Custom float rods. All fish were happily released after the photos Beautiful day and willing fish……what more could you ask for on a fine November day?

Southern Oregon fun at its beet!
Action shots from the day to follow 🙂 Tight lines everyone!
