The Black Dog is a tribute rod to our black lab Montana.  Montana is estimated to have been present in the shop for at least 4500 fly rods.  For the Wing Shooter or the Dog Lover this fast action fly rod with Labrador Retriever with folded paw engraved on the gun stock walnut reel seat is a must.   Montana lived to be 15 and her favorite color bandanna was red...  and every Black Dog fly rod comes with a red bandanna and black flannel rod bag.  She would never get tired on a day of fishing, and was always ahead of you on the trail.  So just like Montana, this rod is a stout fast action.  

Each Black Dog is made custom, so before or during the ordering process, please reach out to JP to talk about what other custom attributed you would like on your fly rod.

Jordan,

The rod arrived this afternoon in pristine condition and I loved the look of it so much that I loaded up a mirage 2 reel and went down to the pond with it. Casting with it was flawless, even in the afternoon breeze and when combined with the reel that I have for it, it balances on a finger at the center of the grip. While I didn't catch anything, I did manage to lose 2 hours of the day just casting, stripping line and casting some more - thanks for an awesome rod ! I'll see if I can send you a picture of the JP Ross logo on the back of my patrol car, figure somebody will take it off before too long though. Below is a review that you can feel free to use as you see fit.

As a return customer to JP Ross, I am very familiar with the attention given to the rods I have ordered. The first rod that I purchased was a fathers day gift for my father who taught me to fish some 40+ years ago and the second rod was a promotion gift to myself. In the year that my father has used his rod, he has often asked the question of why he hadn't had a rod built for himself years ago and he absolutely loves the personalized touches that JP added to it. The rods are meticulously crafted with actions that are true to their descriptions, with multiple ways to personalize and customize the rod to make it a one of a kind, highly functional work of art. Personally I have my preferences in rods and reels that I have learned in my many years of fly fishing throughout the northeast, however for those that aren't sure of exactly what they need, JP will save the day for you in building a rod that fits your fishing environments, style and needs. I was wary of ordering a rod that I hadn't put my hands on, but after getting the first one delivered to me, that hesitation was completely eliminated and upon the arrival of the rod I ordered for myself I felt like a kid on Christmas morning, unable to wait to get it unwrapped. The excitement feeling for me began back in February when I began the ordering process and lasted the 10 weeks that I had to wait for the rod to arrive at my door. The 8'6" Black Dog rod is a fast action rod, mine is in 4wt and I added my own reel to it, I put it together, went down to the pond and spent several hours casting, stripping line and casting some more, enjoying the feel of the line sliding out under my index finger and watching the tip of the rod twitch with each stripping pull. The rod casted very well in a light South Jersey afternoon breeze and after a little practice I was able to spin out some 40 foot roll casts without any splash. I consider this rod to be an all around upgrade to my previous rod/reel combo which is an Orvis Recon-4 with a Mirage-2 reel, plus it has the personalization that makes it unique to just me. I have no affiliation with JP Ross Fly Rods or its' affiliates, am just a highly satisfied repeat customer that believes in the quality of workmanship and attention to detail that this company puts into its products. I highly recommend JP Ross Fly Rods without reservation. JP answers emails promptly and will ask questions to make sure you are happy with what you are ordering, a customer service touch that is greatly missing in modern times.

Sincerely,
