Default Just finished a new toy.

I just finished a 10' 7 wt. BIIX R.L. Winston. I don't remember who it was, somebody very wise, said "You can never have to many rods." Actually, that might have been me.

I just did a plain cork grip. I decided not to go overboard with this one.

Here is the feather inlay. I really like the way it turned out. Kind of has a flame look to it.

Here is the first stripper guide and the wrap. It hit the first ferrule so I went a tad long on the wrap so the guide was in the exact spot. It has a two turn green metallic trim band on the end and in the middle of a purple wrap. I just like the way purple looks on green That first stripper is the only one with a trim band in the middle. All the ferrules have on though. The strippers are Pac Bay N style. I like them for strippers because they have less frame and have the snake guide look to them. Seem more fitting with the fly rod look. They are also the irredescent finish that unfortunately they have discontinued. I still have a spare for everything in the event I damage a guide or tip in the future.

Here is the reel seat. Has a nice burl insert.

I got a tube from Winston to go along with it.

I am making a sock for it, and also one for the tube. I will probably label the cap. I almost always do. I'll post a photo of those when I am done.
