"I just received an amazing gift from my wife. One of your custom, inlaid rod tubes. It was a very special gift and as a woodworker myself, even more so. The craftsmanship and level of detail is astounding."

This fly box is truly a work of art!

"There is no superlative I can use to express my appreciation of your craftsmanship, presentation and personal attention to details to satisfy a customer. This fly box is truly a work of art and the special cherry you chose for it touches my heart because it comes from the very Allegheny forests where our family originates. I am so sure it will be a gift my brother will cherish forever!"
Juanita P.

There was obviously an incredible amount of time and artistry

“We’re looking for high quality and really unique special gifts,” said Simon Perkins. “Knowing Al’s background -- there was obviously an incredible amount of time and artistry -- we could tell there was no question of quality, and it was able to happen very quickly...a lot of people out there look at Montana as a mecca for fly-fishing, and being a quality wooden fly box from Montana is one reason I think it was such a great fit. The story behind it and the craft in every single box does a great job of embodying those Montana rivers.”

Thank you so much for a beautiful piece of art!

"I was fishing in the amazing high mountain alpine lakes west of Buena Vista, CO, in the Collegiate Peaks, this week end.  Wonderful fishing w/ more "tight lines" than imaginable.  Got home today, and the rod tube arrived!  So beautiful!  Thank you so much for a beautiful piece of art!  My 'Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation' custom sage fly rod slid in there nicely, finding a new home. Have a wonderful summer, I'll keep you in my prayers, Many solid takes, and many tight lines."
