Old school mastery: Darryl Whitehead's agate-lined stripping guides sitting in his workshop. Darryl is the Obi-Wan Kenobi of hand-building some of the most fine, beautiful and lively bamboo fly rods on this earth. They are rare and sought after by anglers all over the world. The reel seats he makes for these are from exquisite wood like shining myrtle wood, walnut, black ash, and more. There aren't many masters left these days who make things like these fly rods or anything else.
