We asked Jon about this specific rod:

 A woman asked me if I ever built a rod for a child. I had not, so I worked out a small two piece taper that would cast easily, weight very little, and have a strong tip.  This is the result, but it is hardly a kid’s rod. I took one to England and Africa a few years ago and found it did wonderfully on the Dove and Avon.

(In Africa, the locals thought I was a witch because I wanted to fish, so that did not go as well…)  Small and light, this rod likes both five and six weight lines. A perfect pack rod for Cropley Lake or the lily pads of Windfall Lake in the summer.
