Fly Rod Designer Jim Green Dies

March 17, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

Famed rod designer and innovator Jim (“Jimmy”) Green passed away last Saturday.
Among many other inventions, Mr. Green was responsible for the non-metal ferrule design used on almost all fly rods today. I remember him as a partner in designing the first series of great Sage rods. A great contributor to the sport, in many ways and over many years.
Thanks, Mr. Green.
