Here's a lot of lemon drop photos... Unfortunately, I have lost many from an old computer crashing. Feel free to add some photos you may have.
Here's to an end of a series, though I do have one left that is no done yet... that's for another thread. Thanks for all the support of this series. Enjoy the photos...

The Lemmon Drop is one of those rods that really is amazing. I cast the Blemmondrop at Michiglas (I think it was the one pictured above) and realized I really needed a lemmondrop. I did wait for a yellow one to appear in the classifieds.

Fred's rods are special, it's just that some are more special than others.

Well, after seeing Rod's lemon drop with some bluegill fishing... I thought I would put a few photos back into our database. Photobucket dropped many photos over the years, so here's some lemon drops that I have done over the years. Enjoy!

This is one of Fred's original Lemon Drop builds from 2010 series
serial number 92..

Fred's work I accumulated

Image

Fred installed ferrule rings for me
Kancho rolled a Lemon Drop Tube and Fred sent me a new label for the tube..
The tube Fred sent was damaged in shipping!

Chase took this pic at Chris Barclay first clave in the driftless! Chase wanted to fish the Studio Thin Line while I fished the Lemon Drop
Image

My favorite Lemon Drop photo Allen Zimmerman took this photo at Bear Trap Canyon on the Madison River in Montana last year

Stunning work Fred. The reel seat of Imgp3852 is awesome.

Can’t wait to your new line of rods coming out soon.

" Gorgeous rods, I remember my early days on the forum drooling over Fred's and Liederman's builds. Never gets old. "

Everytime I see those Lemon Drops I lose myself in their luxury. So simple and elegant.
I wonder if Cam still has one for TFM rod testing.

Was there ever an 8ft 5wt 3pc Lemon Drop ? Could there be ?

Cam never had one for TFM rod testing... and I never did a 8'0"-#5-3pc. in the lemon drop series. I don't have any intent to bring them back. I have spoke to the blank manufacturer, but new policies have lead me to continue looking. I do have something in the works, but not ready to make the details public...

Rod - great photos, always nice to see my efforts appreciated.

I have the white lemon drop with intermediate wraps - it's a sweet rod!
