Ken Prager has been building custom rods for many years and continues to have full service rod shop for new rods and rod repair. He spent a first career in the corrugated box industry and a second career in the post tension steel business. Opportunities to fish were always available as many manufacturing facilities Ken worked in were in rural locations. Ken has experience fishing the Gulf coast, in Florida, Texas, and Louisiana. Ken has fished for bonefish and permit in the Caribbean and Mexican waters. He has fished the North Carolina coast for over 30 years. Ken has fished and documented changes on the White Clay Creek for the past 23 years and continues to fish it almost daily (see the blog on the White Clay Creek tab). Ken has spent many hours fishing the Big Elk in Maryland and Pennsylvania as it is within walking distance of his home. A creative fly tyer, Ken formerly taught the advanced and techniques classes at White Clay Outfitters, and will continue to provide educational and skill improvement lessons to all comers. Ken's wildly successful rod building class continues to attract new rod builders of all ages. Ken will continue the task of webmaster on this site. Expect great things to appear on the web site: www.flyfishingdelaware.com and www.vintagerod.com.
