nice work


Thanks double D

I am getting close the finished product. My penmanship is garbage so I asked my wife to mark it before the last couple coats.

Thanks guys I just out the 7th and final coat on her this morning. I'll let her sit until Friday and give it a go. This will be a long week.

Final pic from this project. I made some mistakes ... all have to do with wrapping and are all cosmetic. Overall I'm happy with the out come and I already started the next rod. I'll head out and fish this one tomorrow. I paired it with a DT 4 wt and it casts really nice in the back yard.
