Charlotte 2024

The Charlotte 2024 class exceeded my expectations. I found all the instructors to be both very knowledgeable and helpful. I gained valuable understanding and confidence to build rods as well as insights to repair rods. I've been breaking rods for 50 years and now I finally have the knowledge to build and repair one. Well done and Thank you.

This is the best thing I have done since retirement. The class was beyond
expectation, with 6 professional rod builders to explain and answer questions at a drop of a hat.
I have already built 2 more since being home ,and even caught a fish on the one I made in class..........It works !!!
Thanks again ,Todd, Cindy, Buzz, Chris, Mike and Derwood
