Finally Contented.

It was with great anticipation that I finished work last night in the hope that the cane fly rod from Gary would be sitting waiting on my return home from work and as I walked in the door I knew it had arrived straight away as the wife had a big smile on her face so I knew it was there.
Dinner was forgotten about as I unwrapped the steel tube from its packaging and opened the end of the tube to finally see the rod I had waited 17 months for, it was finally in my hands & I was not disappointed.

Gary's workmanship on the rod is beyond words, I cannot praise the man enough for making such a wonderful piece of equipment, from a raw material as cane all the way through to what can only be described as a work of art. Something I will cherish for the remainder of my days.
















I'm now contented that the memory of my parents will not only be with me in my heart & mind as always but that they will be remembered on the river wither it be trotting for Grayling using the centre pin or fly fishing for trout & Grayling an everlasting reminder to them both.
