Folks,

I don't know if any of you know Gobin or not; but you all should know this about Steve. I have known him for about 12 years and he told me last December, when I asked him is he would toe a fly for the Seattle Fly fishing Show that he had not tied a fly in 3 years; therefore, he declined to tie one because his tying skills are very rusty and not up to par.

Instead of tying flies, Steve has been buidling bamboo rods from scratch that are very nice indeed. I'm sure he would build a bamboo rod for someone if they asked him too and were willing to pay the considerable price for a custom bamboo.
