The Rodmaker’s Rod: This is not a fishing pole that’s a year or more in the making, it’s the conclusion of sixty years of Göran Andersson’s competence distilled into an extraordinary rod taper, built from the current products, and readily available to everybody who values the power of the ideal tool. The boy of a Swedish fly angler and rodmaker, Göran Andersson began customizing fly lines at age 8 and started constructing his own fishing pole not long after.
