Well, he's wrapping eyes on the rods.
I bought titanium guides.
The ones he recommended.
But we found out they are too tall.

After I received them.

To the tune of $364.00.

ouch!

So he ordered the correct ones.
They don't all need to be the shorter ones.
But the ones on the top half of the rods do.

The new guides are BO'd.
For a long time now.
Fuji guides.
The most popular guide you can buy.
Back freekin ordered.

And I leave for Canada this Saturday about 4AM.

 :-\

He's wrapping the blanks using the taller guides.
The Fuji guides should be here in a few weeks.
When the new guides arrive he will strip off the tall ones and replace them with the shorter Fuji guides.

I'll take pics later this week when he finishes them.

These rods do look sweet though.

The jigging rod is almost finished.
He assembled and glued the handle last night.
It looks awesome.
He will turn it tonight after work.
Might get it finished.
I'll snap and post a few pics if he finishes it.

Doesn't look like the longer rod will be completed in time for my trip.
I'm bummed, but it is what it is.

pics of the jigging rod.
The handle is being turned right now.

Hey Bob - check out the wood in that reel seat and also the but cap.
I cannot wait to fish with this thing next week up in Canada.
Wish both rods were finished, but at least the jigging rod will be done.

Swee!    ;D
     One more with the one we're after and we'll have two.
The brook trout is the prom queen of the trout world, and a promiscuous prom queen at that!

Looks good Mac.  My last custom surfrod was 580.  But its worth it to get exactly what you want.
