Summertime is usually crazy for me. Not just rod building but I have a farm I try to keep running. Both really cut into my fishing time.

I actually do work for others besides Bullseye but they aren't quite as interesting. John is always throwing curves at me. Not many pictures as I was in a hurry to get these delivered and get some farm chores done. Maybe John will post some more.

The first one is an old Fenwick 130. It was stripped down and John gave me the colors and told me more boxes, all the way under the big roller. Let me tell you there is a lot of thread there. In the last piture the rod behind it was one we just cleaned up some.

The other one that I was doing was an old Montague. We stripped this on down and I did all the thread work as was done on the original but the colors were changed. John might add some pictures as this is all I have.

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

John sent me a few pictures of the Fenwick after he put his 130 International on it.

Thanks folks! Sal, if the quality of my rods ever equals the quality of your custom knobs, I'd be one happy camper!
