I just saw this notification today, June 1, so not sure if you still need a rod or not. Mike will be here next week, and I could have one made by then. Email me at [email protected]. Sorry I didn't see this sooner, but there was no email notification. Sorry, but I don't know any Lauderdale guides. All my connections are in the lower Keys and Everglades.
My friend Mike Bland fished with you last June, along with Don in Durango. I really like the jigging rod you made for Mike. Would you be willing to make one just like it for me before their next trip (June I believe). Mike said he would pick it up on the trip to save me the shipping charge. I'll be in Fort Lauderdale next week. Is there a Tarpon guide you would recommend between Ft. L and the upper Keys? Thanks!
