Like the post already says, anyone who knows the rod and reel builder Mc Neese?
He makes customized rods on sage blanks. And I wonder if anyone knows the name or his products.

Pretty famous West Coast steelhead guy.
Makes super rods & a nice classic look reel also! Fly designer too! :)
I've seen his E-Bay listings.... look like a great deal. JMHO

McNeese makes some very nice reels, does a very nice job wrapping rods, is an excellent dyer of fly materials, and is a superb fly tyer. At one time he owned a fly shop in Salem, OR. Infact, John Shewey got his start with Dave at that shop when Shewey was in high school.

Dave is a pretty busy guy, so it might take him a couple of months to get a rod done and out the door; but his work is first rate and he is a very nice fellow as well.
