We have 2 8-weight fly rods, made by Jim with Clark Fork Custom Rods. We would like to start off by saying these are absolutely the most beautiful fly rods we have ever seen or owned. Ours are couple's rods with the same colors, but in opposite patterns so they look great together but are still individually unique. We love the personal touch Jim did by adding a trout decal to the rods.
We put our rods to the test this summer in Alaska, during the beginning of the sockeye salmon run. We love the feel and action of these fabulous rods, not to mention all the fun we had fishing with our family. We had no problem limiting out each day. We are enjoying the abundance of salmon we were able to harvest and bring home. We love these rods so much we have since purchased 2 9-weights.
We highly recommend Clark Fork Custom Rods to anyone. The craftsmanship, action, and durability of the rods are impeccable! We look forward to many years of excellent fishing.
