There's always second hand..
Spinozarods (Marc Aroner & Jonas), took over the amazing second hand business VintageFlyTackle started and nourished by Gary Siemer until his very untimely passing due to cancer last year.
Enough top end cane and bench reel to your heart's content!
If you thought your brook trout trip was expensive, you ain't seen nothing yet!
Im not an expert at all and a very cack handed, chancer, caster but I've fished Luke's hollow rods and they were a delight, very forgiving and beautiful.
I don't own one of his rods, regretfully, but I do have two of Rod Dibbles rods, I love them, use them, abuse them, and enjoy them thoroughly, beautifully made as well.
