A couple people asked to see a couple of the rods I've built. I guess they'd go here.

8'6" 4pc 5wt on a Forecast blank built for Casting For Recovery

A couple 6'6" 4pc 2wts on Forecast blanks for two brothers in CO.
The only difference is the green or blue wraps and accents.

Not a fly rod, but I built this striper rod for raffle for the Sons of The American Legion. 7' 2pc on a St. Croix blank.
This was my first experience working with turning an EVA grip.
I was really happy with the way this came out. Plus, it raised over $800 to help us help our Veterans!
