Jason Weeks – Bamboo Rod Builder $850

Jason is an avid fly fisher, fly tier and rod builder. He resides in west metro Atlanta with his wife and two young sons. Professionally, Jason is a commercial flooring sales person but in his spare time he likes to spend as much time as possible at his cabin in North Georgia with his family. Jason’s love for the outdoors and fishing started at a young age going on hunting, fishing and camping trips in the North Georgia Mountains with his father. It wasn’t until about 12 years ago did Jason re kindle his love for North Georgia trout and got serious about fly fishing. His wife persuaded him to start tying his own flies by purchasing his first fly tying kit one year for his birthday. From there his obsession progressed.


In the fall of 2011, Jason saw an advertisement for the John C. Cambell Folk School in Murphy, North Carolina and to his surprise saw that they offered classes in Bamboo rod making and building. Needless to say, Jason signed up for the next available class in January 2012. While Jason is not a “maker” that he splits all of his own bamboo and makes his own blanks, however he does consider himself a “builder” taking professionally made domestic bamboo blanks and turns them in to beautiful rods one can be proud to wade into a stream with.
When not working, spending time with his family or working with his church, you will find Jason tangled up with his father and his boys on what he considers his home water… the Toccoa River.
