Hey Wait Until After The Funeral Man
Thanks for the call out I appreciate your kindness !!!
The rod looks great your going to wind up with a winner there.
Ye British Guides rock small stream light lines.
Cool doings,you folks have been putting up some really nice work,the remakes are still going it's great to see.
I'm just finishing a special rod for my Step Grandson Oliver "The Artful Dodger"
Otherwise been keeping my head down, Got Tired Of Dodging Daggers
staying focused on Myself N Family
The rod is a 6'6" Spinning Rod originally made by H&I,Actually purchased the rod for 20 bucks with free shipping last winter,the rod was in an original aluminum tube,the purchase was for the tube, needed the tube for a recently restored 6'6" Orvis Bamboo Flea.
The spinning rod was in terrible shape really bad bent and missing guides,a real sick pup.
After getting the sections together the blank had a really nice feel for tossing light lures.
The Grip has an aluminum stiffener the length of the cork.
Stripped the blank and did some re-tapering to get more feel,saved the cork and the nickle silver ferrule,decided to wrap the "The Artful Dodger" with all the short spools.
Short spools are spools of thread remnants.
We had allot of fun mixing the threads to make it a one of a kind just like Ollie.
Picked out a new set of Gudebrod Guides from my hoards and went to work.
Grabbed a Shakespeare Reel off the auction site last week I'll get the rod lined up soon as the last coat of Varnish Applied this morning sets.
