´ve always been a do-it-yourself type of man. Making things myself is the way to get things exactly the way I want them. I had designed and made bamboo rods for some time when I bought a lathe to make customized reel seats. One day it occurred to me that I could start using my lathe for making reels also. I worked on the first reel for days – it wasn´t a masterpiece, but I didn´t give up and they started to get better and better.
Ville has been my fishing buddy for years. He and his family run a metal workshop close to where I live. They welcomed me to use their machinery to create sound prototypes. Ville got inspired by them and soon we started to work as a team. Ville is our company’s sense and that leaves me the man of sentiment. Making numerous salmon fly reels together we have found our combination works and we are dedicated to make quality reels. Our customers have given us excellent feedback. Our near future goal is to design trout reel models also.
