C.F. Burkheimer Spey rods are the creation of Kerry Burkheimer out of his small factory in Washougal, Washington. Burkheimer Spey rods are some of the finest Spey rods on the market and feature some of the best craftsmanship in the industry. Every blank is hand rolled in their factory and finished with the finest details. These rods are also amazing casting tools. They are a progressive rod that enable one to cast a variety of different spey lines such as Skagit, Scandinavian, traditional, and long belly Spey lines. Once you cast and fish a Burkheimer rod it is hard to go fishing with anything else.

I agree that these rods have a very special feel about them. Read my review of the CF8134-4 Classic. 13ft 4in double-hander:
