DH Custom Summer Rod?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever used any DH Custom summer rods? I have a few of their winter rods and really like the actions and workmanship. I was just wondering if the summer rods are comparable?

his rods sure seem nice and being a local guy to my area I was excited to possibly buy a few of his rods. Unfortunately I stopped into his shop one day to check it out and pick up some supplies and was treated pretty rude I wont go into details but I cannot in good mind buy any of his rods. FYI it was not even me that was treated rudely.

they look like great rods and I know he puts his passion into them.

The summer line is just as great as the winter line. The summer line has a rod for every situation you could think of. Very sensitive and has great feel and action.

I dont own any of them and build almost all my rods for myself, but, that being said DH is a great guy and does really put a part of himself into all of his rods. Im not sure what happened with the way you were treated but everytime I have stopped into the shop, Dusty has welcomed me in and alot of the time I end up hanging around for an hour or more. His summer line is great from what I have seen, I have fished the "feather" for eyes once or twice and its a great rod, very light and sensitive. He seams to have his bass/walleye line dialed in. Stop down on a saturday and check out the shop, let him know what your needing and im sure he can build something that will fit your needs.

    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
