The Oliver White Permit, a partnership between SLP + Oyster + Oliver White. Very rarely are we able to include those two in the same sentence, let alone the same room. In February of 2019, SLP introduced these two legends to each other and a new relationship was born.
A name synonymous with superb craftsmanship and quality within the realm of bamboo fly rod making. It isn’t often that you find someone who truly pours their heart and soul into their work, but that’s just what Bill Oyster does when fabricating his signature bamboo rods in his shop, located in historic Blue Ridge, GA. Each and every bamboo rod is comprised of the highest quality materials, elegantly forged by the hands of a master craftsman. One of the most talented and skilled engravers in the world, Bill Oyster adds breathtaking detail to his lively bamboo rods by capturing the essence of fly fishing within the metal components of each of his rods. Sought after by anglers all over the world, each Oyster bamboo rod is a one-of-kind work of art, as well as utilitarian, and built for a lifetime of memories on the water. The unique nature and quality of Bill’s artistry drew Sight Line Provisions to approach Oyster Bamboo with the idea of collaborating on a special piece, the Sight Line Provisions + Oyster Bamboo Artist Collaboration.
The process began with sending Bill Oyster a silver Permit, to add his distinctive touches, making precise cuts into the silver to unveil a flats scene out of a dream, forked tails and sunbeams through a thunderhead cloud in the distance. Once completed, this finished work of art was cast so that this edition of 250 could be created.
