Gee, BDH - I'd have thought you would come up with a Seamstress' Tape - seeing as you have that nifty handbag and all...

On my steelhead Fly rods the cork grip will be a inch longer also the reel seat will be a 1/2 longer and with including a fighting butt grip which will make the wrap for hook keeper and the butt end of the grip 16 inchs.

However... when I bait fish using my minnow bucket, I have a string tied to the bucket that is 15" long, with a mark at 12". That's because Walleye must be 15" to keep, and Sauger 12". Bass have to be one or the other depending on the body of water.
When I'm doing catch and release, which is probably 95% of my fishing or more, I rarely bother to measure if I have my camera. Besides, I've noticed that without the deleterious effects of a tape measure upon the body of the fish, it increases in size every time you tell someone about it!
