Your Dad’s Rod Deserves to be Carried in Leather

Ah, fishing. The manly sport of standing in just-above-freezing water, tempting sliver-backed salmon to pluck your bait.

When I fish, I prefer to hold my rods, in leather, never plastic. Fly fishing is a sport of nuance, so carrying and transporting your most trusted rods, reels and flys should be done in the most discerning manner.

If you are looking for the perfect way to carry your gear, I’d recommend looking at Ghurka’s cases. Maker of fine leather goods, its elegant double-rod duffel is crafted in the finest calfskin leather with its signature lining and solid brass hardware. It is handmade by Italian artisans who have been crafting the company’s sporting items for forty years.

It also makes the perfect gift for the Dad who has it all. However it is made to order, so send Dad a link to this story and tell him those Italian craftsmen are hard at work making his custom case.
