havent posted in a while, but have seen so many beautiful rods by others here...no doubt the finest rods are being made by folks that do it for fun!

I finished up a 4 wt rod recently and put a butt on it...the balance was fine, but moreso it is always a nice benefit when in deeper water...and I need to have both hands free to tie on a new pattern...I just shove it in my belt and get a chance to stay in that spot and not need wade back to shore...

its also a great asset on stack mends...especially with more than 15 yards of line out...an easy flip of the butt and the mend is all good...

the reel is a replica I picked up for fun...I actually kind of like the heavier weight than most of the newer CNC jobs used nowadays...

Breac à linne, slat à coille is fiadh à f́reach - mèirle às nach do ghabh gàidheal riamh nàire.
a fish from the river, a rod from the woods and a stag from the mountain , thefts ne'er a Gael was ashamed
...and old gaelic proverb...
