Pezon et Michel

h1 classbiography Pezon et Michelh1TAKEN FROM httpxoomer.virgilio.itppotoccopezon%20english.htm P et M was founded in Amboise near Paris after the end of 1st World War as a continuation of a production-and-sale activity started in 1895 by messers Pezon Serpette Bourrellier and LHeritier (the earlier company had an own production of pike and carp rods as well as rods for au toc fishing and distributed fly rods as Milward from England). First bamboo refendu fly rods were manufactured for PM by two craftsmen whose small enterprises were acquired between 1924 and 1930 and moved to Amboise H. Garreau from Dijon and F. Robillard of Macon. Rods manufactured in these years were clearly inspired by traditional English rod types which use at that time was widespread. Following items were available Darling 9 two pieces Midship 9 - 96 - 10 - 11 three pieces Teddy 9-96-10-11 three pieces Willy 11 three pieces Week-end 9 three pieces. During this period rods are completely hand-made in non-tempered bamboo and its easy to find even visible differences in rods of same type. First refendu rods manufactured autonomously by PM were Luxor spinning rods built in non-tempered bamboo as well proved to be too smooth and slow in their action still far from standards desired for modern fishing rods Between 1935 and 1937 an electric oven begins to operate this allowed a sharp control of temperature used in bamboo temper process. Its the first step toward the creation of a structure that in future years will produce fly rods unique for their manufacturing knowledge and accuracy in raw materials choice afterwards to this capital technological innovation begins the production of new Luxor Luxe spinning rods and of first items of Parabolic series fly rods. During this time another key event takes place Charles Ritz joins the company. Charles-Cesar Ritz was born in France in 1891 by Swiss parents and will discover fishing quite late in his twenties. In 1917 Ritz moves to United States where he will remain until 1928 his first employment will be at New York Ritz-Carlton Hotel managed by his family And in his leisure time he starts entertaining a deep devotion for fly rods restoration at beginning and then for rods construction. In these days he met Jim Paine beginning a discussion on tapers (term that identifies the conical profile of the rod that features the rods action and behaviour). By his American stay Ritz will earn a great technical development and a huge growth of what will be his angling culture and education. Once back to France between other interests strictly related to fly fishing stands the committed cooperation with the magazine Au Bord de lEau a milestone in the matter founded in 1935 by Tony Burnand and Roger Pujo. And just Pujo will suggest to Ritz to pay a visit to PM works one month after his first visit Ritz was hired as Technical Consultant and will leave an everlasting mark on all production since that day. Initially partnered with master craftsman Edouard Plantet (who by his way had learned the art by Garreau owner of the workshop above mentioned as first supplier and then partner of PM) Ritz begins to carefully devote himself to study and design of tapers soon the couple will be joined by Pierre Creusevault technical consultant and esteemed tester (as world champion cast with fly rod in all cathegories). The cooperation of these three big-names in brief leads to the creation of the first marvel the Parabolic action that quickly outclassed (by a lot) old and heavy English-action fly rods and not only Parabolic will be preferred even to American-made rods known for a more modern casting action. The first prototype of Parabolic is an eight-footer rod two-pieces normale action (the meaning of this term will be after-written) and represents the official start of PM as refendu fly rods manufacturers. Production of this first masterpiece required the setting up of highly sophisticated and precise machinery with the main intent to supply a large number of high-quality prototypes to be tested these prototypes are studied and produced with slight differences then are committed to testers and often are put to the test even by selected friends of PM staff people well known as able in casting and angling that will give a valuable feed-back to manufacturers.
