Ice Rod Project

12 February 2015 - 10:31 PM

Hey guys,

Given the deep freeze thats going on this rod was the perfect project to finish up.

I used an old fibreglass tip from a  spinning rod and guides off some broken rods to build this up. The reel seat area is stacked birch bark and the butt and fore areas are black walnut and sumac.

The reason I built it was to test out painting a blank.

AMF 7'6" 3 wt. build

15 January 2015 - 10:30 PM

Hey guys, 

This is my second build I managed to complete. I seem to have more builds on the go than I can handle, so I finished an easier one. 
7'6" AMF 2 piece blank 3 wt. 
nickle silver sliding bands on a mesquite burl insert.
This was my first go at feather inlays. 

Still working on getting the bubbles out of the epoxy, but I think I have finally figured it out thanks to past posts on the forum.
