These are taking a while because they are a pair of trout spey rods I'm building for myself and my fishing buddy Mark so I'm only able to work on them in shorts frames here & there between customer builds. Finally got the seats and grips done on them now at least. Applied 8 coats of clear urethane to the grips which really brings out all the fancy cork work colors nicely. Hope to have some time to wrap them next week perhaps.

Your usual quality work, Steve.  Thanks for the pictures.  Looking for the finished rods.

Nice I have a 12ft 2/3wt Blank sitting in my shop that I am looking forward to build.  Hopefully will get to it soon, but need to finish a few other builds, and am also customizing a new to me 12ft Aluminum boat.
