PB240733One thing that has irritated me for years is how my rods end up stacked up against a corner of my home office or garage when they aren't being used. Many are very expensive, and they are all too nice to be hidden away in a bundle. I've seen rod racks before, but never liked any of them. Either they are handy and practical, but look like crap, or they are a made in a very feeble attempt to make something aesthetic nice. Of course there are many nice racks out there too, but in my eyes they get cluttered too much with modern materials such as plastics and metals. I wanted something much more old fashioned, yet quite functional.

Some of these things sound quite crazy, such as the time a friend of mine and I just decided to knock on the nearest door and get to know the people living there. It was a shock to the people living there, but a fun one, and gained us a life long friend. This is of a different such stunt. It became one of the big stories at my high school, and is still a good laugh. An innocent prank if you may say.

Up until now there has only been the use of Facebook and other social media, but this is about to change. The scene has become so big that the market can't ignore us any longer. The "Sportsfiskemässa" in Sweden has it's lure builders corner and fly tiers street, and other fairs also have their own contributions to the art.  The Tackle builders fair in Poland is another step forward. The fair is a sponsored event with only tackle builders. No big brand companies or shops with heavy funding, but all small one man projects with unique ideas and products.
