    Default Tom Morgan Rodsmiths

    I bought a reel from Tom once, and rate his 2-piece 5-weight as the best rod I have ever cast (but sadly don't own).

    Lovely piece on a master builder: http://espn.go.com/espn/feature/stor...unity-universe

    Read this a few years ago. Nice piece about a legendary guy. Imagine what his rods are worth now that he has passed on...

    He has MS and recently sold his business, but I don't think he died. Did he?

    Brilliant. Make sure you only use slightly undersized agate guides, Tom's signature build.
