Cane and Silk
My name is Mike Kattner and I am located in eastern PA. I have been enthused by flyfishing since I recieved my first fly rod from my father when I was very young. I am now 35, thoughout my life so far I have become an acomplished fly tyer and rod builder in my free time. Initially I have only built custom rods for myself and friends and family members , 2015 I have decided to start a rod business part time aside from my real job and family responsibilities. The main goal for my new business is to supply quality custom bamboo and glass rods at affordable prices. Most flyfishermen/women have at one point or another thought about fishing cane rods or even a custom built rod, but have felt that they are not affordable now they are...
About lead times for my custom rods. Bamboo rods typically have a lead time of 4 to 6 weeks from the day the order is placed. This can change slightly as my work flow changes. The fiberglass rods have a lead time of 2 to 4 weeks as these are much less labor intensive.
In addition to the bamboo and glass rods we sell, I can build rods on customer supplied blanks and can offer some other choices on reel seats and guides
