Welcome, I enjoyed going to your website , that is, if you are the Gary that RB mentioned in his thread. I was using your fly pic (Gentleman, Red shirt, gray hat, says "Granger Bamboo") for my avatar, but it hardly seems right with you posting here. So I am back to my best friend for my avatar, Emma.

Welcome Granger Bamboo !

Sorry, but I find all this (your web site ) facinating. I saw on your web site where you sell labels, tubes, and socks. Are these originals, the same as the originals, or your own design ? I have a restored Granger, that I purchased from a priivate owner in the area. I dont even know the model, but it gets better (ages) every time I use it. ;) In fact, it caught some fish today ! For Bamboo, I purchased it for a great price. Do some of your customers go with the newer hardware on their rods? Does anyone order higher weight rods like for Salmon or Striper fishing ? Lastly, thanks again for sharing your work on your website, I think it is great your rods found their way into Forbes/Four Seasons. I am sure you are busy, so if you don't have time to answer all these questions, I'll understand. :)
Sorry for all the questions

The bags are the same style just made with thicker material. The tubes are very close to some of the originals they used many different ones over time. On some restorations I use the newer reelseat if the old ones are banged up. At this point no one has ordered a rod over 8'6".
Do you do restoration work on Phillipsons? Bill was the production manager over there for a while. Is that 'close enough'?

Just incase there`s some that have read this thred and are scratching their head and thinking,, who is granger bamboo?Let me enlinghten you. He is none other than Gary Lacey whom has the right`s to build 3rd. Generation Granger Bamboo`s and all of his rod`s are built from the origional Goodwin Granger Taper`s. If you haven`t seen any of his work!!!
I don't have one in need of refurbishing yet since I've been getting them in good condition. I do see some 'project' rods on occasion and was hoping that there would be someone locally that is good at at this. ....and since Phillipson is 'in the family' so to speak, that you would be open. I hear "yes", appreciate it much, and look forward to sorting something out.
I can't make the bar-b-que but hope we run into each other, maybe at the Feb show.
