olden Witch is an‘e-commerce’ company.For the fastest possibleresponse, please emailus with your questionsand use the web-store toplace your orders. Wedo not have a dedicatedphone staff, so if youcall during businesshours you’re likely to get our answeringmachine. Please don’tbe shy about leaving amessage if you need to;Erica returns all domestic phone messages within one business day. Also, we closedour walk-in retail shop to run a strict mail-order only business and we no longerhave the staff or the facilities to handle walk-in clients. Excepting students androd clients whom we are expecting, pleaseunderstand that we will politely turn away  visitors. As of September 1, 2004 we’ve changedour office hours as we strive to find thebest balance between your needs (our firstpriority) and the fact that Erica & I areearly risers who’d often like to start ourhours well before dawn ... and that’s notrealistic since so many of our clients residein the western U.S. and overseas. As forthe closing time, now we’ve got kids whoget home from school shortly after 3:00,thus the move to a 3:00 closing time.Closed On Weekends ... Why? The more we grow, the more frequently we field thequestion, “why isn’t your company openon weekends?” The answer could be long,but here’s the short version. We (Russ &Erica) work hard to make sure that wehave time to spend with our family. Intothe indefinite future, we have no plans tooffer evening or weekend hours. It’s notthat we don’t value your business. We do,immensely. But we also value our kidsand we want enjoy our time with them. Thanks so much for your interest in ourcompany and our unique line of products.Erica & I sincerely look forward to beingof service!

is our graphic designer. Matt West has been making his own split-bamboo fly rods since1998. Golden Witch has been his chosen component supplier since the beginning, because, simply put, “GW has the best products,the coolest products, competetive prices, and the best customer service around, bar none.” In 2004, he began taking on a few of GW’sgraphic design projects, and now he finds himself here...still here in 2008! If you need the scoop from one of the most down-to-earthrodmakers around, talk with Matt. If you have graphic design needs, he’s a guy in tune with what a rodmaker wants to see.Contact Matt at:

OK, well, mybe not really. But Some folks won’t do bamboo at all, and othersneed a good jumping-off spot. Graphiterods are great for many applications, and why settle for the uninspired anddecidedly un-custom rods availablecommercially? Learn the tricks to build amodern classic. See page 7.

elcome to our 2008 Catalog & Website. First, thank you for a great year in 2007! As ever, Golden Witchcontinues to evolve as a company and 2007leading into 2008 has been no exception. Erica& I strive to blend our business interests with your needs as our fellow rodmakers and customrod aficionados. We continue to enjoy thefact that we reorganized GW as a mom & popoperation a few years back. We’re also certainthat this is beneficial for our loyal clients so weplan to remain small, focused, and pertinentto you and your needs. Having no employeesbut ourselves allows Erica & I to take fullresponsibility for everything we make for andsell through Golden Witch and we take a lotof pride in doing things right. We’ll be thefirst to admit that we’re not always the leastexpensive option and sometimes it takes us afew days to ship custom products during peak season, but we feel these points are well offsetby the fact that each order receives our personalattention. This year you’ll find that our productline has remained fairly stable. In short, we’vedetermined which products we can make and/or resell with only two bodies doing the work. We’ve added some new agate colors, includingGreen Lace in 9mm & 10mm, and Yellow Banded in 11mm. There are three great new books on classic rods that have been printedsince our last catalog was produced. And, afternearly two years of work (initial filming took place in early 2006), we are pleased to announcethat Tightline Productions, LLC has releasedthe new two-DVD opus on which collaborated:The Graphite Fly Rod, How to Build a ModernClassic. Running well over three hours inlength, this DVD set goes into far more detailthan any other graphite rodmaking videoavailable. The theme of The Graphite Fly Rod ishow modern rodmakers can take the centuries-old classic aesthetic which originated with split-cane flyrods and apply that aesthetic to modern,graphite blanks. Every single step of the rodbuilding process is captured and steps requiringprecision workmanship are demonstrated withclose-up videography. The DVDs are organizedinto 29 chapters on everything from finding thespine to executing feather inlays, so it’s easy for you to locate and repeatedly watch those steps which most challenge you. While obviously geared toward synthetic rodmakers, our cane rodclients will want to make the small investment inthis DVD set because it is filled with rodmakingtips that didn’t make it into our previouseducational DVDs. If you’re considering ourGraphite Rod Building class, this DVD set will give you a small taste for what a week inthe shop will be like! Speaking of classes, ournext available classes will be scheduled in thesummer of 2009. Don’t hesitate to contact usfor more information. Be sure to watch for theflag icons through-out our 2008 catalog. We’veused these flags to highlight the countries in which ourproductsare crafted,allowing you moreinsight whenmaking yourpurchasingdecisions. As moreof ourcompetitorsmovetheir massproductionfacilitiesoverseas, we’re staying home to support American Craftsmen and to keep a direct andimmediate eye on the quality of componentssuch as our reel seats and other nickel silverhardware. In the case of our agate strippingguides, we make them in the GW shop - that’slocal! This said, any top notch flyrod doesrepresent the global marketplace in which we’reproud to participate when that market supportscraftsmen and women making components orsupplying raw materials that are without parallel. You’ll find bamboo from China, cork and gripsfrom Portugal, and pure silk dyed and wound inEngland. There’s a lot more I could write about,but I’ll end here with best wishes from Erica &me for a great year in 2008!
