The First Sale!

---------Ryan Rod Co. is pleased to announce that on the 19th. of December 2005, Eric Ryan delivered the first production nine foot, five weight, four piece, HexAngler® fly rod to delighted customer Greg Johnson, Owner, Consolidated Rock and Mineral Shop, 5115 Quinn Rd. Vacaville, CA 95688-9452, (707) 448-5525. This rod is intended to be a practical gift for his son Chris Johnson, in fact the rod was signed on Chris’s birthday! Special features of the rod design included: Molded Synthetic Ruby/Carbon Fiber Tip Top, Molded Carbon Fiber/S-Glass Tapered Hex-Ferrules, and a Molded Carbon Fiber Rod Tube (which fits inside a standard black cordurra travel rod tube). The action and quality of the design was developed from four previous prototype models. Greg, an avid bamboo fly fisherman, was the first in hopefully a long line of satisfied customers to consider the merits of Ryan Rod Co.’s ultra light tackle. Having many similarities to traditional hand planed bamboo fly rods, this Ryan Rod was made entirely by hand form space-age materials and processes by the maker, Eric Ryan himself. Now that a quality standard has been established, Ryan Rod Company plans to expand in-house production by working with small private production facilities world wide. There are thirty three parts in the finished product, each a novel and functionally redesigned classic, lighter and more durable than any contemporarily available production components or finished rod sections. All interested parties (investors, manufacturers, developers, composite workers, or just the curious and friendly) are invited to communicate with Eric Ryan through:
