My frist two rods

Recommended Posts

 

These are the frist two flyrods that I built with the help of the site. Looking for some feed back on what you think and what I could do different.

he accidently posted the thumbnails of the pics he uploaded, they are in the gallery. from what i can tell they look nice. its hard to take photos of rods because of the shine, but a closeup of the wraps themselves would be nice. The wraps look possibly a little long on each end of the double foot snakes, but I could be wrong, kinda hard to tell. Other then that, the construction looks good.

Thank You Steve, When I get a chance I'll have to figure out how you did that. Also Steve I do think that your right about the wraps being a little to long. I caught it after I compared it to my Scott rods. I'll try to get some close-ups of them, but the camera I have is really shit.gif

 

OSD, you hit it right on the head the inserts did come from Les. He puts a lot of pride into his work, and he is a very nice guy to deal with. As for what kind of wood they are I'm not sure. I just saw them on his web site and like them.

 

Thank you

Rick

The only criticism that I would have is also the size of the wraps. I personally prefer the look of smaller wraps. It's a minor critique however.

 

From what I can tell from the images, you have a good eye for color. You matched the blank and seat very well.

 

Good choice on the grip styles as well.

Nice, job man. Yeah, getting the wraps perfect is tough... I look forward to critiques on my rod as well...my power dryer is in the mail from eBay smile.gif !!! Oh those reel seats are SWEET!
