Jacob Rash, of Between Two Banks, began building rods roughly four years ago for personal use. The obsession began with the art of bamboo rods and has extended into the world of fiberglass. He is a builder with a passion for the vintage and classic, focusing on the simplistic, finer points of the fly rods. He'll spend hours with anyone discussing a rod and and what makes it great.
The vintage theme extends from the general aesthetics to the feel and action of the rod. He not only builds rods, but also has a passion to restore and refurbish rods of past.
For more information on having your own custom rod built, a restoration or just to discuss the finer art of rod building, please e mail Jacob Rash at firstname.lastname@example.org
That being said, we will be gone for the entire month of September.
If you are need of a sock (or more) or anticipate needing any next month, please place your order before August 18th. Any order placed after that date I cannot guarantee to be finished and shipped before I leave.
Y'all there's still a few days left in July, so get those sock orders in!
For quite some time now I've been surrounded and, by association, completely immersed in the world of bamboo rods.
Many, if not most, of Jacob's friends, are also builders or at least bamboo collectors and aficionados. Thus, I hear about this craft a lot. A LOT!
Over the past month, I've had the privilege of working with some amazing rod builders and creating some incredibly unique rods socks! This has really been a phenomenal experience and I'm looking forward to more builders and more socks.
