That’s funny you posted this. Your Dad sponsored me back in the day. And my buddy has some of my older rods and sent me this pic a few weeks back.

I had one made 12-15 years ago. It got broken last year, and it hurt me bad! I think I kept the handle in my shop. Best senko and fluke rod I’ve ever owned.


Wishin I was Fishin!!!

Go to the Texas Comprollers site and search the company. If it's still actively registered in Texas the owner or owners will be listed.


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

Christopher, wow this is a trip down memory lane for me. Your Dad Kit was not only a kind gentleman but one heck of a spiral wrap rod builder, proud to have know him and to have been sponsored by him. As you know your Dad purchased the line from Joe Graves, and in his last few years he sold the business in 2008 to the McDaniels, Randy and Dorothy in McKinney Texas. They kept the business for 2-3 years and then sold it and at that time I had moved onto the Lews rod line. Being in the business I have not heard what happened to rod line. I have hung onto some of those rods, a lot of history and memories in them.

Here is an article from 2009 when the McDaniel's had the business written by Chris Brown and a picture from 2006 that your Dad took when we were on Rayburn in together after catching a fish on a TSR rod. Good Luck and if I get any more info I'll reach out to you. Debra
