    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 am looking forward to seeing the finished product!! I haven't shot a bow in years......too much trout water to explore!!

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