Hi! I just saw that rod on the Classic Fly Rod forum. Looks sweet, congratulations! Makes me get all excited again about getting my broken tip Edwards restored. Cool. Doesn't compare to yours of course but my first fly rod was a mass produced Horrocks-Ibbotson that I paid $4 at a garage sale (buyer and seller probably both got a good deal 25 years ago when I was in high school) I just got it out last weekend to cast it in the backyard a bit. Thats good fun!
