The tip is done without a cut, nick, or any other foul up!
Sorry for the poor pic but oh well, after this the rod will be brought down to Cumberland Valley to be glued up at my teachers house. After the glue is sanded and the blank cleaned up its on to ferruling, dipping, wrapping and finally fishing!!!! I've still got a 4wt 4'11" 1pc and a 8' 4wt 3pc that are waiting to be be roughed and finished but I've learned to take this stuff one small step at a time. When I get the chance I'll put together some photos in a step by step format so it all makes more sense. Thanks for watching!
