English Handmade Fly Rods at a Reasonable Price

I came across a company out of England owned by Mick Bell that makes fly rods and sells them directly to the public.  The next time I'm in the market for a new rod, I'll likely buy one from Mr. Bell.  The following is from his website:

Our rods are not designed around big advertising budgets and marketing hype. We produce extremely well designed rods from the best carbon fibre and components available. Our carbon fibre cloth is only available in limited quantities from Japan and as a result we are unable to manufacture more than 500 rods per annum. We sell direct because the wholesaler and retailer profit margins are greedy. This means that we can sell fly rods that are equal, if not better than any other high end mass producer but without the excessive price tags. Our rods have become the first choice for serious fly casters and I believe that actions speak louder than words. Enough said I think.
