Brasstown Creek has been making bamboo fly rods for
over six years. While building these bamboo fly rods, we were
constantly searching for quality hardware and components at the best
possible price. It took a lot of work and a lot of time, but
Brasstown Creek was very successful. So successful, in fact, that
we decided to take what we found over the years and make those hardware
and component items available to rod builders at reasonable prices -
many with great discounts. We at Brasstown Creek are proud of our
products and we only sell what we will use ourselves.
