    Jack pole build?

    Why do you need a jack pole?? With today's long range rods being 7+ feet for example a 2x4 or 3x5, I don't see the need for the long bamboo in a skiff. Your chances of really using it are slim. I've have the same results with a TIGHT DRAG, the correct liftpole hook, and a heavy troll rod. Joel

    I hate sanding hypolon, so I came up with a better mousetrap

    FAST!!!! When the screen is new, it is razor sharp. The grit is similar to a cheese grater side where you shave nuts like nutmeg. Looks like 4 points pushed out. You cannot push too hard otherwise you'll slice into the foam too deep. Use finer sand or drywall paper to finish. Very easy to...

    Photos of wraps etc??

    Ok Folks, I am at a loss. I'm trying to take decent close up shots of handle and guide wraps. I have a basic Canon Powershot A570 about 2 years old. I've tried to zoom, tried different settings etc. with only BLURRY success. I realize I need lots of practice, but is it a distance problem or...

    Old custom calstar needin a fix

    No, I don't believe so. I would drill and pin no more than 1/8" size. Also, make sure you go through both sides of the reel seat.

    Old custom calstar needin a fix

    A quick fix: Do like Yo's used to, drill a hole through the reel seat and blank. Insert a small pin or bolt into the hole so it's tight then grind flush if necessary. Be sure to glue it in the hole. This also works for the gimbals too!!

    My "hobby" pics

    Just FYI, On the black/gold handle, I built that "pool cue" for myself originally then found a buyer who wanted it BAD. The handle has hypolon on the ends about 1-1/2 in. The middle consists of 3M non skid with the gold wraps around the seam thats finished. Glad you like it coming from an...

    Super Seeker 6463xxxh for "effigy"!!

    Time was about 4 hours for the guides and 3 hours for the overlayed chevron/ spider center. It took me a little while to search for the right colors to use, I figured probably a day?? The pattern was easy to do. His blank had more "carmel" color than others I've seen. Joel

    My first Phenix build

    Steven, Thanks for your info. I use the "medium" version of that same pen. They're very nice to work with. Does that Phenix blank have any "glossy" smooth coating or is it similar to the G.Loomis hybrid? I've been somewhat out of touch... Again, THANKS!! Joel

    My first Phenix build

    Steven, Nice work!! I really like those colors and handle work!! What kind of marker are you using for the name?? Is it the type where you push the tip down to get the ink flowing??

    $460 Rod Blanks anyone?

    Just curious, Sorry for my ignorance, but did Sage quit making the spinning pack rods?? If so, what a bummer!! Up here in the NW, I've messed with those that were 6'6" to 7' rods. Most were 4 piece and when bent the rods had virtually no "flat spots" at the ferrules. Awesome sticks!!

    If you ever wanted to catch a three....

    Well, Being a short guy, I learned how to effectively use the rail to MY advantage, the way I like to fish. Everyone has their one style. I prefer this over a harness simply because you have more freedom to move. Really, the only times your in the harness is when the fish is straight "up and...

    If you ever wanted to catch a three....

    Correct me if I'm wrong, I thought IGFA stated that the rod cannot touch the rail. Also, the line cannot be touched, gaffs cannot be over a certain length (I thought it's 8 feet long). etc. etc. By using the rail rods, it would be an automatic disqualification??? Basically the IGFA rules were...

    $460 Rod Blanks anyone?

    Personally, and this is just my opinion, but I'll keep building rail rods. There's very little chance of breaking one specially at approx. 300-400$ per blank. Since the fly rod topic came up, Sage also makes very nice high end pack rods for spinning/casting too. AWESOME with a Shimano Stella...
