Please note that as of October 2007, I am no longer accepting rod orders from new clients.
That was in 2007 and it is now 2023 and I am 70 years old with a cancer diagnosis, so I'm afraid it is unlikely if you are on my waiting list that I will get to your rod. My apologies; I realize this has been and is frustrating for some of you who have been looking forward to a rod from me for many years, but it is the turn my life has taken. With current treatment it looks like I should still have a number of good years and in this time I will continue working, both on rods and on photographs. I will be building rods that interest me and occasionally they will be listed for sale on my webpage 'Rods and Reels Currently in Stock.'
Rod Tubes - My in-house brass capped aluminum rod tubes are available for Brandin rods for $125 ea.
Ferrule plugs - ferrule plugs are available for $35 each.
Rod Bags - Specially designed and sewn 100% cotton rod bags incorporating a top flap and ferrule plug pocket are available for Brandin rods at $60 ea.
Rod Tube Bags - It is very handy to put rod tubes inside a heavy outer tube bag to protect the tube and label. These are 100% heavy cotton twill and use a top flap with ties. These are also $60 ea. I will only supply these for use on Brandin rod tubes.
