    Wonderful work Dan. Looking forward to seeing the inlaid feathers.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    You'll have to PM me your number, I spend a lot of time driving to and from fishing in a car by myself! There is however, another option... will you be at the Midwest Expo? If so, we can definitely meet up. I'm going to need a lot of pike advice as well since I assume that will be my closest quarry when I'm in Sweden.

    The handle looks very nice, should be a beautiful rod when it's finished.

    I'm going to PM you my number right after this post. As for the Pike in Sweden, oh you definitely need to do that one. They have some huge Pike over there. It's been quite a few years back now, but I saw a list of the top 100 pike ever caught, and only 2 were from North America if I remember right. Point is, they have monster Pike in Europe.

    I have a deep Green/Black Classic twist thread. I thought about using it. I'm going to have to look for that thread. Was it also on a deep Blue blank?

    Yes, fysh posted a link to T&T on the thread about test wraps by auntrout I think. Just go to the T&T web site and you will find the picture on a rod there, the picture isn't great but you'll get the idea.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Looking forward to your SBS on thin trim bands. I'll be starting my third build soon, waiting on parts from acidrod. Planning to doing trim bands on this build.

    If you get to where you need to know how to do them before I get them posted, call me. I'll PM you my number. I can do a one turn wrap you can't see where it crosses at. Neat trick.

    PMing the number.
