C. BARCLAY FLY ROD CO. - The Lookbook

Sometimes when two people love each other very very much...wait...wrong talk. Let's try this again...

Sometimes when a famed small shop fiberglass fly rod builder meets up with a tech savvy photog with some serious skills, magical things happen.  Enter, the C. Barclay Fly Rod Co. Lookbook.

I think every small shop rod builder (gear and reel makers, etc.) should befriend a photographer/videographer to help tell their story.  There is just so much great content to capture and it can be beneficial for their websites, social media and beyond.  Storytelling is easier when you can see it all.

For years now, Chris Barclay of C. Barclay Fly Rod Co. has been designing and refining his tapers along with building some of the nicest (though somewhat nichey) fiberglass fly rods around.  He's boiled all his current offerings into the Synthesis Series, which is a collection of fly rods from the 6'6" 2 weight for those tiny blue lines to the 8'6" 8/9 weight for the flats.

With Chris's move to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, he soon after met up with Dave Fason of NanoBox, who's pretty handy behind the lens (you've seen his work HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE with more on the way) and he recently helped Chris put this fancy lookbook together.  It's worth a look.

Take a few minutes to check out the C. Barclay Fly Rod Co. website and listen to an recent interview with Chris on the Remote. No Pressure fly fishing podcast.
