Looks like you and Marlo had great weather and good numbers, and it looks like the river is starting to drop back down? - john

As a fisherman of sorts, my choosing a knot should be influenced by the application, ease of tying and expected strength following my fiddling around right?
  To my thinking 🤔 the Albright knot has been around for quite some time and I use it some still.   
The Alberto knot is being mentioned more now it seems and brings up a simple question.
Are these the same knots?  Or a variation ?   Usually an improved version has an extra twist?
   Somebody will know,   Just wondering.
Below is a picture of a problem that Iíve got concerning the connection.    I used 20 wraps down and 15 back up......To me only half of the wraps are working.   Do I have too many wraps in the knot?
  When testing the knot it always fails in the front part where the braid starts the wraps on the folded mono.   
   Itís an easy knot to use when I,m in a hurry generally just making the day more complicated.....

I am definitely not a rod building expert, so for what that is worth...   the placement looks good to me, including the first guide.  I think it lines up well with the size of reel and should funnel the line cone quickly in addition to the 2nd guide.

How does the rod react with it under load with line, as in fish-fighting load?  For a 7' I personally would prefer the extra guide.  Perhaps the spacing can be nudged a bit starting with #2 so to make room for the 6th guide if needed.

Oh,...it looks like you riveted it from the inside when I enlarged the photo.  I though you had some ancient Chinese secret or something like that.

I did rivet the end that opens (with the lock) from the inside....

Two maybe three bait & tackles in my little corner of nowhere (south Georgia) sell salmon/steelhead rods, Shimano I think.   I would guess that people down here are using them for speckled trout.

Yeah I'm no fan of filler in the part of the handle you grip. And I agree that uneven cork is a better grip when its worn in. What I'm talking about is I wanna fix this mess:

2 things come to mind...
1) I think the new bellevilles might be thicker than the origionals, sometime the bearings themselves are just slightly thicker/tighter too.  It is always harder to make more space than fill space up, but I am thinking...

1)You may need a stack height between stock and your (()) like use a shim with the |(()).
2)Shim between the left plate bearing and plate for every shim worth of space you lost when chanfing from ()() to |(()).

I usually approach this by measuring the origional belleville stack height and using it as a guide to determine #/location of shims with new bellevilles.
