Scandalous Sticks. Logo for a custom fishing rod builder. Stephen Vance makes some seriously beautiful rods that fish as well as they look. Graphite and fiberglass are his specialty, and his passion is building tools for your passion. Not to worry, “Scandalous” is not your father’s use of the term: Today’s younger people use the term to describe something that is outrageously cool and awesome. You know, like, sick, dude.
