Harold "Pinky" Gillum was one of the most highly regarded rodmakers of his era, and was known almost as much for his personality as his craftsmanship. Famously perfectionist, he detested fly rods being mistreated, and understandably so after his painstaking efforts to create them. Gillum had numerous influences and associations over the years - initially inspired by E.W. Edwards, sharing a shop with George Halstead, working for a period at Orvis, and maintaining a long-standing friendship with Jim Payne, among others. Although he passed away in 1966, today his rods are among the rarest and highly collectible of any maker. If you are looking for a Pinky Gillum fly rod or have one to sell, please contact us.
