Howdy All,

I will soon be offering a new line of built to order fiberglass fly rods. Development of the PLG line took quite some time. These rods offer a full-flexing, moderate action and are specifically designed to load effortlessly for shorter casts and delicate presentation on spring creeks to mid-sized streams. I chose to go with distinctively Jenkins components and the same conservative cosmetic approach I use on my Signature cane rods. Initially, three models will be offered - 7’6”, 5 wt., 2 pc., 7’3”, 4 wt., 2 pc. and 7’0”, 4 wt. 2 pc. I hope to have a page dedicated to these rods up on my website within a couple of weeks. I haven’t determined the price yet, but look for something around $300.00, give or take.

Thanks to all who took a look.

Looks great Steve! I really like your decision to go with your long time, well recognized cosmetics -- it just makes sense to have your glass rods look related to your cane, IMO. That cork looks very high quality and the price is attractive too. PLG stands for what?

It wouldn't be a Jenkins without a cherry reel seat! Excellent choice.

Great looking rod -- very nicely appointed, especially good-looking quality cork. What does "PLG" stand for? What blanks will these rods be built on?

Howdy All,

Thank you for all of your kind comments and feedback about my new PLG rods. It is all appreciated and encouraging. I have the new website up earlier than I anticipated. You can view it by following this link http://www.jenkinsflyrods.com for more information about the rods. Just a quick note about delivery time. Since the rods will be built to order, delivery time will vary depending on the number of orders for the glass rods I get and time spent honoring my Signature cane rod orders. Thanks again for your feedback.

Steve Jenkins

Hello
Very nice Steve!
I'm certain the rods will perform in line with Jenkins reputation of excellence!
The new web site is very impressive as well.
All my best!
Tight lines and plg loops

Steve,
I really like the classic appearance of these rods. Of all the glass rods I have, I find myself picking up the prototype 5 weight I purchased from you more often than not. I had been trying to picture in my mind what your final design might look like, and I am NOT disappointed. The price is also very fair. I have a good friend who told me today that he was thinking about getting a couple of new blanks to build on, but was also interested in a finished rod. He has cast my rod a few times and was impressed. I will definitely steer him toward your website.

Larry

Hi All,

Thank you again for all of your continued kind comments and inquiries about my PLG rods. I wanted to let those who might be interested that I mailed a PLG 7652 (7’6”, 5 wt., 2 pc.) rod to Cameron Mortenson of The Fiberglass Manifesto today for his loaner program. You can follow this link if you are not familiar with the program. http://thefiberglassmanifesto.blogspot.com/2012/05/tfm-fly-rod-loan-program-list.html. Hopefully, Cameron will have the rod by the end of this week or early next week and it will be available to anyone who would like to take it for a test run. Thanks again for your enthusiastic response.

Steve Jenkins
