If you own a TMR bamboo rod from the last decade, chances are good that Ric Plante has put his artful touch on this rod. He’s our bamboo rod maker at the shop. Not only a rod maker, Ric is our Jack of all trades. A machinist at heart, he can fix anything or make anything. The stories Ric can tell will run long into the night and we feel it’s best we share these stories one at a time. More on that to come!
When asked about his fondest memory of Tom, Ric is quick to recount some of Tom’s childhood memories. Like blowing up the wood pile with dynamite or catching over 150 fish on the Jefferson with a close friend of his.
