Here is another one going to Bullseye54. We started off with a Calstar
RT130 blank and an old vintage butt (not sure if it is rosewood or not) and
then made a couple of winding checks out of Linen/Phenolic laminate rod.
Used large cork rings and then installed some vintage Finor rollers.
The thread is Gudebrod nylon from old stock. This is scheduled to go to PEI
for Bluefin Tuna next year. I really hope it lands a dandy and someone can
get a picture of it bent over. I'm sure John might add a couple more pictures
as he is going to use his new 20/0 reel on it and is that reel impressive!

Great work, Dave!

Doesn’t get better than that...

Best,

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

Thanks folks! I really enjoy doing rods like this and John seems to give me so many. I bring him 2 and he gives me 4 to redo.
The new one is going to be a real challenge. An old Montague that has been stripped down and he gave me a few pictures of
what it was like. Only time will tell.
