Default Started another one.

All the rod design and length threads along with Dean MT's wraps I had to get another one going. So with a friends pro bono rod in the works, another to go to MT and my own Letort 40 drying nicely, I took my scrap strips and knocked up a little number I call the Back Packer Bushwhacker. This will be a 2pc at 5'6" to pack into some of the more remote locales I plan on getting to this summer.

Glad to hear it! No rush for me, I'll be busy with Bass and Fluke soon. I won't be building much til the Tog stop chewing.

Might be a bit longer than I thought, I'm thinking about throwing a hail bomb and getting the hell out of this place and heading back that way on a wing and prayer. Getting sick of having to make the best of a bad situation, Dirty Jersey's looking cleaner every day!!
