Recommended Posts

Let me preface this with I am an amature rod builder. Not in the class with many of the people here. I had to take my wife to the Mayo clinic 4 wks ago. Spent 14 days there getting things straightened out.

Had some time one afternoon and found tackle shop called Wild Goose. Mel is the custom rod builder there and of course we had a long talk. This is a special man not only in the work that he does along with donating time. He teaches 4 classes on rod building to H.S. in the area. Great way to get young people involved. One of his students is now teaching classes. He also has time for heart surgery patients to come to his shop to build rods. He showed me one half done with nice cross wrap.

The rod building industry is wonderful Mel is just a small part of it. Thought you might be interested. The people in Rochester,Mn are blessed.-Bill Ballou
