The trifecta is complete. Justin's wrap is done, he's a huge Spiderman fan and wanted Spiderman colors and of course the "spider" pattern.

Epoxy is done on the kid's rods, still wet so I'll post pics later. I got side tracked with another grip project and a few more jigs so Gina's rod hasn't even been started. I might miss this deadline...

This time of year it's all about the night fishing, it's gotta be black. Don't worry the moon is coming, the yellow school bus will be out soon

Second grip done, not sure why I had to this this grip right now since I don't have a rod for it yet but A-D-D gets pretty bad at times...

Project has completely derailed. The last rod still hasn't been touched, I'm hooked on the foam...

Not perfect, but the pattern worked. Now I'll try it again and see if I can get it to line up better.

I find this thread quite disturbing..... How somebody can do so much with EVA and also do fantastic weaves bothers my weak little mind. Just how AR are you? I mean, geez, most builders are AR, but I think you might have deep, deep issues well beyond the rest of us.

Great work by the way.
