That's great work.

Just an idea. Could you make them so the reel fits in the other way? Then you could put another slit in the strap, and have a case that would go around the reel while it is on the rod as well as off.

 

Cheers,

C.

Thats a great idea, I could certainly do that the only thing id need to change is put another hole in the strap.

 

Thank you everyone for the compliments

Yep, changing the strap so it sits on a made up rod would make this type of case very marketable to salmon guys here in UK.
