Jamie, good to hear from you and Thank You for the compliment! I heard thru my daughter (the techy)told me that my name was being thrown around on line and several people were trying to get a hold of me for rods so I figured I'd check it out.Paul, Clark's closed in the early 90's when Dad was posted there.I used to use my grandfather's old Lucky Strike 'boo over there. Shawn Pineo used to build bamboo here in NS, before he was posted to CFB Borden on ON, dunno if he still builds or not. He made a sweet rod,too!!
