The Rodmaker – Jostein Stulen…

Jostein Stulen 6

This evening my local fly fishermans club,Fluegruppa, had invited tool maker and rod builder Jostein Stulen. He talked about the process of making a splitcane rod and showed us the tools he uses,many of wich he has designed himself. His rods and reels are truly works of art. He does not sell any of the rods. He is simply a true craftsman and a master of his trade. He is a perfectionist and his rods proves that. I just wanted to present some photos from this event…

Reel

This reel is designed and crafted by Jostein.

The rod to the right is an imaginary fly rod. Josteins idea is that if one were to make a fly rod  in Norway a thousands years ago,with the materials available this would be it.
