Dale and Rona have sold Fulton's Lodge. The new owner plans to replace the fire damaged main building and office area with new lodge facilities. Denis Dunderdale has visited with the new owner and has been assured that SRG can continue to meet at the new lodge. We have no plans at this time to relocate the gathering.
This was a big decision for Dale and Rona. We're sad to hear they will not be our hosts in the future, and we're pleased to celebrate a smooth transition into retirement for them. Hopefully they will join us at the gathering next year.
About the Gathering
Southern Rodmakers is an annual gathering of bamboo fly rod makers. Over 300 craftsmen from 39 states have gathered on the White river near Cotter Arkansas since 1998. If you're interested in making bamboo fly rods, join us at the gathering in October, or follow the links below to join the on-line gathering of bamboo rod makers. "The List" is a great place to start. The list is an old school e-mail server with hundreds of members around the world.
The New Rodmakers List
The old rodmakers list server crashed in the summer of 2018. All membership records were lost. A new rodmakers list is up and running. If you were previously a member of the list you will have to resubscribe at the new web site. Here's a link to the new site:
