Joe Nicklo and George Sutherland led two rod building classes over the past several months, with much appreciated help from Bobby Orr, Paul Robertson and Joe Flowers as proctors. The first class with nine members was conducted at Bayland Community Center in February. The second class with seven members was conducted at Gordy and Sons in March. Both were two day classes.
The participants not only had fun building a rod to their unique color and preferences, but are now able to enjoy casting with it for years to come. In the fly fishing world, it probably can’t get much better than that – joy of casting a fly you made with a rod you made! No doubt the signup sheet for the next class should be in “overflow” once again!
First Class @ Bayland Community Center / Day 2
Second Class / Day 1 @ Gordy & Sons
Second Class / Day 2 @ Gordy & Sons
Looks like the group had a great time building something that will provide years of memories and enjoyment.
Don’t miss the next class, which hopefully will be possible soon in spite of the COVID crisis.
