Oh Yeah. Almost forgot, the Microwave Guide System may make an appearance on our Bushido Spinning blanks for you to test cast. Yes, even at a fly show. The only way to find out is to stop by the booth. Hope to see you there!

Meet American Tackle Pro Staff Member

Billy Vivona

Billy Vivona started building rods in 2000, and immediately was hooked by the artistic aspect of the craft. His reputation grew as he began teaching others his tricks at local seminars. This led to Billy forming The NERBs, a worldwide group of builders who specialize in Rod Art. In 2007, Billy authored his first book, Decorative Wraps and is currently working on his second book, Decorative Grips. He pens a Decorative column for Rodmaker Magazine and hosts rod building seminars at his shop located in Staten island NY all Fall and Winter. Billy has also worked with Seeker to design the Hercules series of blanks and other factory rods.  Billy has also been a distributor of Seeker products for 4 years. In 2011, Billy became an ATC distributor and a Pro Staffer, and designed the factory Seeker Hercules rods with the Titanium Virtus Lite and Virtus Heavy guides.  Billy stated why he uses ATC components "because they are the best guides on the market in their line class."


American Tackle is greatly appreciative of all that Billy has contributed to the art of rod building.  Please check out his website and his amazing work at:
