Wish the guy who raps my rods a Merry Christmas. He told me the rest of the guides we had on backorder have arrived. I paid him $650 for the guide so far and I still owe him another 200 dollars. A lot of the stuff is for fly rods. Recoil titanium strippers and snake guides. Enough to build 5 or six heavy saltwater fly rods. Best fly-rod business is ridiculous. Winston what's $650 4 one of their boron rods. Nuts. That's the blank and the boron is in the lower one quarter of the blank. I managed to acquire some exceptional blanks from the Johnson company in Colorado. Turns out this Johnson guy used to design rods 4 graphite USA. He designed a fly rod for them call the windjammer. I mentioned to him that I had one and it was stolen in Mexico. We became fast Friends. He sent me 4 of the nicest heading saltwater fly rod blanks I have ever seen and charge me a pittance. Presently or shortly down the road we are planning to put together rods two fish a Super 8 Super 9 10 super 11 super 12 super 13 and super 14. the latter two being lifting rods suitable 4 any kind of billfish large tuna
Trevally. Essentially those are unlimited class. The other rods ar 11 12 13 15 weight. Jesus I don't even like to fly fish that much! Also working on a half-dozen or so D 8 36 and TNT. I have some true line blank I'm going to sell off. I've got all I need. My son will get most of it. He's fishd them since he was 7 years old. Need 2 figure out a few things. Having Tiburon SST in a bag that I need to get repaired. A general cleaning and lubrication backfire and I need some broken parts replaced. Never unwilling to pick up a bargain. Just got a couple small hooks graphics that's gas hooks Gap gaff hooks. Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah dictation is so much fun also picked up a pair of wire cutters. Need to buy a few more gigs. That's jigs. Like I don't have enough already.
Merry Christmas. Hope Santa brings you what you want. And that what you want is really expensive!
