Product Description

Thanks Russ. I was astounded that another client saw the last purple rod that I just completed with your [12mm Purple Banded JM Special] agate stripper on it, and he liked it so much that he asked me for a purple rod, same length and weight as well. Love your work, as usual. …  – Gregg J. (USA)

 

From the fertile mind of Mr. Joey Moll at Fish On! Custom Rods, we present the “JM Special” series of guides. Fish On! specializes in glass blanks built up into extravagant fly rods that conflate traditional design elements and bold aesthetics. Mr. Moll worked with ACW to create an appropriate guide: natural stone; vivid colors; a narrow, modern ring; a classic cradle frame.

As of February 2021, all the guides on this page will be crafted using our superior Hydro-Welded™ Cradle Frames.  These things are the bomb…super durable and great looking!  They’re also tedious to fabricate, so the new price is a true reflection of the time involved to craft them.  We’ve just started making some JM Specials with the new frames and will have pictures posted soon.  For now, suffice to say they look similar, yet better – and they truly are stronger and more durable…the sort of guide you cut off a rod to re-use on a new rod when you’ve worn the first one out.
