    Great looking rod, maybe someday you may consider putting them on the market. Who knows, they may be very popular and make you some extra money. rspd507

    Wow, very nice! I suppose she knows you made it for her and you HAVE to give it to her.... could still go to Wally World buy an el-cheapo rod and give her that and keep that one for yourself. No, that would be right, some thing I would do but definatly not right. lol Very nice!

    Dear Brother Hartman;
    Bill, your second rod is looking good!:big_smile: Just remember to NOT get in a hurry on any part of making a rod and you will do fine! After all, each rod has a part of YOU in in, therefore, each rod you make should be a "Labor of Love" and as such, always your best effort!:wink:
    It also sounds like you need to be taking your wife with you more often too! She could very well end up your favorite fishing buddy!:wink::big_smile:
    I know that My Wife; Raven, is My FAVORITE and Preferred Fishing Buddy, Hunting Buddy, and all the other hats she wears that would be too long of a list to post!:big_smile: That is just ONE of the many, many, reasons I married her and I've never been happier in my life! Bar None!
    Thank You for sharing your second rod with all of us.
    Sincerely and Fraternally,
    Coyote1
