The Rod Makers Story
« on: November 08, 2016, 12:49:53 PM »
A wee documentary by Alex Rimmer about Gary Marshall at Fine Cane Rods :cool:

This short documentary was based on a brief that I decided to do from University.
I love fishing and I also love split cane rods, so I searched on the internet for a rod maker close to my university.
This is how I came across Gary.
This is the first time I have ever filmed a documentary so I guess it was a learning process from day one.
I hope I have done this awesome process justice.
Please go and check Gary's website out, he is always around to answer questions and queries.   At the heart of your fishing ..... lies a great fly line!

Cracking video, but amazed to see he dips the entire rod, guides and all!
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

I was also amazed the whole rod section was dipped including guides. Built a ton of rods but never cane from scratch, just from blanks, Great video and great story, a man who found his passion and got out the day to day trudge of "work"

Love this site
