...Wasn't quite sure which category to put this, but John Gierach writes about his custom Walter Babb rod in the April '09 issue of Grey's Sporting Journal....another great Gierach story if you haven't seen this one.

I got my first bamboo from Walter this year. While at his place he told me of meeting John and fishing with him/ He told me which rod John liked best but yet when John ordered he ordered a different rod (which is mentioned in the article). Walter does excellent work and here in Alabama many people have admired and complemented my rod. Walter is an absolute great person to meet and get to know. Also, if you look at his price verses everyone elses (except for a few builders) he is very reasonably priced. Once I get in tonight I will post pictures of my rod setup and you to can appreciate his work.
