“Bill Critchfield built a beautiful 5-weight rod for me several years ago. After finally shedding my jitters about possibly breaking it, I slowly worked it into my fishing rotation. Once I landed a 20 inch brown on a Trico, I became a true believer! I now reach for my Bill Critchfield rod first in just about every instance. I love the action, the strength, and the craftsmanship of the rod, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.”

“Bill Critchfield’s custom bamboo fly rods are truly works of art. The Craftsmanship, attention to detail and fishing performance for these reasonably priced fly rods should not go unnoticed by the serious fly fisher. I highly recommend owning one of Bill’s beautifully crafted bamboo fly rods. You won’t be sorry.”
