Our Limited Edition Rods
From time to time we offer Limited Edition Rods. Currently, we have one model available. As the name implies, only a very limited number of each offering will be made, so it is highly recommended to order one as soon as possible.

--SOLD OUT-- Our current offering is a 7', 2 piece, 2 tip, 4 weight Claude M. Krider rod, designed by Claude in the early 1950's, but redesigned for a 4 weight line, and hollowed for lighter weight and faster action.

It comes in a blond or medium brown (ammonia treated) color with a custom grip, made from 1/4" vs. 1/2" cork rings, agate stripper, exotic burl wood insert, and distinctive wraps of the finest silk.

The reel seat hardware, and ferrules are hand engraved by Charles E. Lee of Ione, California, formerly of James Purdey & Sons, London (See http://www.purdey.com). Charles has many years of engraving experience and does exquisite work as can bee seen in the various photographs.


This is a pentagonal (5 sided) rod, and has a medium/fast action. As with all our rods, it comes with a quality rod bag and custom aluminum tube with solid brass ends complete with our name and logo.

Pictured is serial #1 (of 12) in blond. Claude made his rods in either blond or ammonia treated (even brown) color, so accordingly, we offer both.

The rod is priced at $2,499.99. Please call to reserve yours. Only twelve will be handcrafted.

Read why we and others believe pentagonal (5-sided) rods are superior to even sided rods.

Please call for more information.
