Good morning,

I recently read on that Artie Hebert had passed on. Artie was a rod builder along the Texas Gulf Coast. Several years back I had phone contact with him regarding cracking of finish at the guide feet ends. He had interesting views about this. He went so far as to make a short video and send it to me. I believe that he was big into long distance casting rods. He made videos early on for sale.

The day after his death his widow fell and broke a bone/bones. Some rod builders down that way are trying to help her financially. They also built her a ramp so she could get out of her home.

Kyle Ligon is running a raffle to raise money for Mrs. Hebert. So far there are 2 custom rods and a special air filter to filter the air in your shop. (I have an air filter in my shop to filter chemicals and it is great) I believe other prizes are pending.

If you would like to help please contact Kyle Ligon by email,

He is using Pay Pal and Money Orders. You can read further info on the Rodbuilders Forum.

Thank you.

Capt Neil
