The 'Gladstone' and 'Moran' range of bamboo fly rods are built from top quality hand split Tonkin Bamboo, using a collaboration of Tom's and my own building techniques to produce some of the most beautiful and efficient bamboo rods available. They are elegantly finished with pure silk wraps and a lustrous spar varnish finish. Each bamboo rod comes with two mirrored tips, open top bag with stiffener and a handmade leather rod case stamped with the makers name.

The 'C. Gladstone' rods have the classic 'Hardy' style full cork grip elegantly shaped to fit perfectly into the anglers hand, and finished off with complimenting blued nickel silver hardware. Snake brand tip tops and snake guides with Tom's own hand made fly keeper ring, finished in Pearsall’s Gossamer silk with tan tipping.

The 'T. Moran' fly rods have the classic 'Leonard ' style with the highly figured reel seat and swelled butt.  Morticed tiger maple, or eucalyptus reel seat to match the colour of your blank and framed with the fine knurl blued nickel silver butt cap and sliding band. Snake brand tip tops and snake guides with Tom's own hand made fly keeper ring, finished in Pearsall’s Gossamer silk with tan tipping.
