I build rods with three different progressive tapers, and one parabolic taper. Medium dry fly, Medium fast
dry fly, and Medium fast delayed progressive. These tapers (F-1, D-1, H-1, and H-7, respectively) form the foundation of all
my tapers. All other tapers listed are empirical modifications of these original designs.
Easy casting, mild semi
parabolic action for all around use.
E-1, F-3, and H-7 All are 3 piece models
Medium Dry Fly
These rods feature light tips
and a swelled butt. Wonderfully crisp, classic eastern dry fly.
A-3,B-1,C-1,D-2,D-3,E-4,F-1,F-2,G-1,H-8, and 5' 1 piece
Fast Dry Fly
These rods are faster in the midsection and result in rods of incredible power.
A-6,D-1,E-3,H-5,J-1, and K-1
Fast Delayed Progressive
These smooth casting all around rods are the result of blending the Payne and Garrison taper design.
With the light tip action of the Garrison , combined with the strength of the Payne midsection, resulting in
a versatile rod with a smooth transfer of power
Though not listed, I build these models in all lengths from 6'3" to 9' in
D-4,F-4,H-1,I-1,J-4, and L-1
