Question and answers concerning makers and manufacturers of bamboo fly rods.
3 posts • Page 1 of 1
I am beginning a new project and would be interested in info about this rod. The rod has two names on it and research concerning the names and bamboo found nothing. As per the photos, there are two names inked on the rod, "Ashley" and "Bill Newcousky". I am curious to know if Bill was perhaps the maker, naming the rod (or line of rods) after Ashley, or perhaps Bill commissioned an Ashley rod from another pro builder. I'm sure the brain-trust here can shed some light on this mystery.
