 I haven't posted any rods recently because I have been so swamped I simply have not even been on the site much save a min or two here & there. The past 3 weeks have been insane with work. Been spending 10-12hrs per day 7 days a week down in the shop building rods trying to fill orders. Got a 3 days fishing trip coming up 24-27th so trying to get as caught up as I can before that so I can take a short breather for a few days (much needed!)

 

So rather than start a new topic on each rod....here's some of the ones I have built over the past 3 weeks. Crazy thing is this is probably only half of them. I'll tryin get some of the other half posted when I get a chance.

Love the blues and greens.  Also love the handles with mostly dark cork.

Nope not an Anglers Roost blank. I'm actually not dealing with the guy at Anglers Roost that much now he's become extremely hard to deal with and half the time sends the wrong items other than what was ordered. Which is a shame too because the blanks he sells are really nice and the price is very affordable. That blank is an IM8 graphite 7wt from a different supplier of mine.
