Attention: All Customers

Unfortunately, I have sustained tendon damage in my shoulder and as of the 1st of May I am not able to work.


UPDATE – 16/7/2021 – I have had the cortisone injection. Those saying it is a painful injection don’t know what pain is. It hasn’t kicked in yet but it varies depending on the person, apparently.

I’ve been told I will be working again as of the 1st of August…YIPPEE!!!


Please Note: Clients have been sending reels in already in anticipation of my return and consequently there is a que of reels in the workshop, including those from before I was injured.


If you wish to add to the que then that is fine. The turn around time will be approximately 2 weeks…starting from 1st of August.


I have lifted the ‘hold’ I placed on all new custom rod builds, re-builds and restoration works. I can undertake this work BUT I cant give any guarantees of completion times as I will only be working on rods roughly 1 day a week.

I know most of my clients are prepared to wait.


Work on small rod repairs such as guides and tip replacements is quick and easy and these small jobs are typically completed on a Sunday, then are ready for collection Mon/Tues onwards.


If you are local and wish to drop off your reels and rods to the workshop please note that this is by APPOINTMENT ONLY.


Thanks everyone.
