I guess it was a little over a month ago that I shared that Chris Barclay was pausing new orders and after some serious shop time, along with some day trips to his local brookie haunts, he's opening up the books for orders again. You can read the update on his "Resuming Orders" blog post.
If you've been thinking that you need a C. Barclay Fly Rod Co. fly rod in your life, you're right. You do.
Last summer I shared the experience of picking up my fly rod from Chris with a day on the water but I need to circle back and share the photos of my Synthesis 68 being built. I believe that I'll do that early next week, so look for it.
