Fishing Rod Making / Building Cork Rings on ebay

For your consideration is a bag of 84 cork rings for Fishing rod building and making. These are 1.25" x .25" x .25" bore rings. There is enough in the bag to make three 7 inch cork grips. This is high quality Portuguese cork specifically made for turning high quality cork grips. I use this cork on my best hand made custom bamboo fly rods. These rings retail from dealers for $.99 to $1.50 per ring.

These are my photographs of the cork I am selling. My photos get ripped off a lot and used in other auctions. I've alerted ebay, but they don't always get taken down.











Here are some sample cork grips that I turned using this same cork -







This auction is for one bag of 84 cork rings. I am selling this cork to help fund some tools and materials for my bamboo rod making shop.
Thanks for looking and good luck bidding!
"A three or four ounce split bamboo rod, with a well balanced reel, a tapered casting line, a leader of the proper fineness, and a well tied fly, or flies, is one of the most perfectly designed and executed triumphs of human artisanship."
