I haven't posted any pictures in a while as I mostly have been building bamboo. I had someone ask for one of my 7'2 4wt's. This is finished out with a custom turned duronze hardware, cherry burl insert. Chestnut thread with cream tipping.

Thanks for looking
Bob

Nice build on a great taper. You also have a 5wt based on one of your father’s old glass rods (8ft 1in I think) which was also exceptionally smooth. Great to see one of your glass tapers again.

Very nice, Bob. I’ll bet that’s a fun fishing rod!

That's the classiest fly rod build I've seen in a long time! A mature looking rod for a wild freestone stream...
