Took my 1 wt and a few copies of Marks fly. Lots of chubs, and a few nice rainbows. Above a example by the homemade reel.

JT the reels body was a bar of brass and the spool aluminum. No drag much but adjustable tension on the spool. It a good fit for a 1 wt rod :)

And probably at least a $300 savings. Amazing work there!
