East Cape Anglers is a local fishing club and I built these two rods for the club to give as awards for a couple of their tournaments. Most of the members know me, but there's always new members that have just moved here, so I thought I'd donate a couple of rods to let them see what I do. Blanks are just Pac-Bay glass that my buddy brought down and most of the parts are stuff I had laying around, so I don't really have much invested. So, it's "almost free" advertising. The club holds 4 tournaments each year and the first is held the Friday before Mother's Day, with an Awards Brunch on Mother's Day. It's a ladies only tournament and the first rod is for the winning angler. So, I made a rod that a lady should like. I used a Rod Skinz graphic that is a faux abalone and topped that with an over-wrap, al a tiger, of Voodoo pearl to "lady" it up a bit. The second rod is for their last tournament, which is held around Fourth of July, so the graphics on this one is Old Glory. I'll tell you later what I used, but for now -- any guesses?
