Rob Paull   -  Rob grew up as the third generation of a family of woodworkers and carpenters.  Although his main area of work has been as a practicing dermatologist, he has been involved
as a sideline in woodworking and home renovation through his adult life.

John & Rob met through a shared passion for fly fishing and have worked together

our products after the sale, should that ever be necessary.
