Let’sbegin with our first“hero”
Harry Jamieson, the only person in the world, who possesses a
certificate of the English royal
warrant, built the rod currently used
by the Prince Charles (the emblem of the prince of Wales, the
3 feathers, is paint on the rod). But not only Prince Charles, other famous people, like the professional golfers Greg Norman or Tom Watson, or actors like Robin Williams, come to the Harry 's shop only to buy rods made by him.

On the road for Spey River! Picture took with Ian, from who we received fishing lessons.
Currently, this "greenheart rod" is only produced by Harry Jamieson (it is made of greenheart, an african wood). This rod, called "father of spey", is extraordinary! We were literally bewitched in listening mister Jamieson, when he explained us the production's method of these fantastic rods. When we visited his workshop, rods produced 100 years ago were in renovation. People who possess these rods really want to transmit to their children not only the rod, but also the way to enjoy using them. That why I think that this rod deserves the appellation of legendary rod. "grenheart" rods. Only Harry Jamieson can produce these perfect rods ! Jamieson's goal is to create rods which can be used more than 100 years.
Mister Koike, who caught a Japanese salmon, thanks to his hability and a rod made by Mr.Jamieson.
Senzaki, pulling a resisting fish.
Naturally, he was using a "clan" rod.
According to Senzaki, only rod can
decide to catch (or not) a fish. It doesn’t
depend of the fisherman.
