Each year would-be craftsman travel from around the world to study
with the most prolific teacher of rodmaking working today.
Let Bill Oyster guide you personally through the process of creating your very own custom bamboo fly rod.
Each student works at their own solid maple workbench which is outfitted
with an arsenal of the highest quality tools, such as
Lie-Nielson planesandBellinger planing forms.
In fact, these arethe very same tools and methods used to
create every Oyster bamboo rod.
Our shop is located in beautiful downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia.
Our year-round trout fishing will afford you the opportunity to put your new rod to good use. Fannin County is the Trout Capital of Georgia.
This, after all, is the true test of a complete rod making class.
If you don't leave with a rod that's ready to fish, then you didn't get complete instruction...period!
