We find out how the custom build-out bonus came to be, which burl he selected and how to make it beautiful, and the step by step process from wood cut out to package ship out. Ethan talks about his collaboration with Tom Morgan Rodsmiths to come up with the Catch and Release package which is a pretty sweet combo. Ethan also tells us about that bamboo rod that was passed on to him from his great grandmother, the rod he first learned to fish with and still uses today.
