Hi, I welcome to the first blog for Lucky Rods. The intention of this blog is to provide a forum about rod building, and desires that fishermen would like to see in their rods. Hopefully you’ll provide me with input with the things you’d like to see in a rod, like flex, moderate or fast action, tip action rods, classic bamboo, and fiberglass or carbon rods. All rods have their place, depending on your desires.
From time to time I’ll include stories about my fly fishing friends and bird hunting partners. I’ll also provide information on current fly fishing conditions around the west. Then there is bird hunting.
Like many of you I fish mostly through the spring and summer – and into until fall, when bird season starts. This fall was a gypsy bird hunt in northeastern Montana. I love to hunt birds behind my two Drahthaars, Kuno and Kuschel.
And of course there are always the great recipes I’ll share to help you make the most of your fishing and hunting rewards!
