Default 15 pound rod

The U.P.S. man came down the driveway yesterday carrying a long cardboard tube and when he handed it to me, stated, "that's sure one heavy fly rod." He knows I fish. Approximately 15 pounds, I explained it wasn't a rod; but, a Osage Orange bow stave to build a traditional long bow with. I've been waiting almost 2 years for this piece of wood. For a minute, I thought I should play along with the heavy fly rod comment, but the guy is always friendly and makes sure packages are put out of the rain, etc.

I'm looking forward to it also. With my planned fishing this summer, it'll be a winter project.
