.....  when i saw this!   Grin

Funny that I happen to gravitate to this sight, and now a moderator.  I used to wrap custom fishing rods professionally for about 20 years.  If you have any general fishing rod questions, you may PM me directly.

um, surprise!!!!!!   Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Alan, you are a great teacher and friend.  You make it a non-decision to be and stay here.  Learning can be fun, and it is fun here with all of the guys that have joined you here.

Uh oh! Stand by for a rod-tsunami, Bryan! Shocked
Maybe Alan will come over and help you get your garage set up for your second hobby/avocation/addiction? Grin Grin Grin  Let's see, reel repair department here, and rod building and repair over there, and fishing stuff on that wall. Oops, cars outside! Cheesy Cheesy

Yeah, I can see it now.  My first job will be to repair all of his broken rods.  LOL.  He has always wanted to open a fishing store.  Maybe it will be a custom rod and reel shop.

Cars already outside.  I got to get rid of some stuff as I used to polish waste veggie oil to use as fuel for my totalled diesel truck.

I have been building rods & working on my own reels since I was 14,I am now 48,where did the time go???.seen a lot of changes in that time.I thought I did a good job on reels until I got hooked on this forum.Great to learn from everyone & all the input.I am much better at rodbuilding than reel repair,maybe this forum will change that.

Cool, now I got someone else to help answer questions.  Contact Fishead...   Cheesy

I have been wrapping rods since 13.  Got started repairing my own rods.  Yeah, I got a lot of rods that no one wanted as gifts.  Used to wrap for a few stores in Hawaii.  Mostly Ulua rods and whipping rods for papio with a few ultra lights in the mix.  A couple of trolling rods as gifts.  To date, I don't even have one of my rods.  All were sold and some misteriously broken by my friends.

There's only so many gaffs you can use  Wink and don't forget, don't try making one from a multi-piece rod  Undecided
