Re: Project Healing Waters
Guy's and gals, on one
of my favorite forums- The Fiberglass Fly Rodders, we are in the process of building a glass rod. It will go on e-bay for auction and the proceeds will go to Project Healing Waters
One member (mountainshark) donated a Lamiglas Spring Creek fiberglass 4w blank and a root beer agate stripping guide.
The rod was then sent to another builder (Gypsy) which in turn made an amboyna reel seat that he installed.
He reamed out and put on a rattan half wells grip (which another builder- Evanslmtd- made). Did some feather work then sent it to me for guides.
I got some Snake Brand guides, wound some Gudebrod Candy Red thread on them. I then shipped it to Mike McFarland for the agate guide install and the inscriptions and epoxy coating.
When it gets done, I'm hoping someone will stimulate the economy and buy it for an outregeous sum of cash.
Can I hear an AMEN.
This is for all the great soldiers out there that sacrificed something and it's just a little something from us in return.
Here's to you soldiers.
Life is not like a bowl of cherries. It's more like a jar of ghost peppers. What you eat today might burn your ass tomorrow...
