    Thought I would share a rod I just finished for the owner of Wild Wolf Product "great cat tackle guy,s, on here"

    Pete's rod is a bottom bouncing rod with a extra long handle and custom turned cork, for comfort when holding it for a long day on the water, the reel seat is reverced so you are not holding the threads the whole time, and its perfectly balanced with a abu reel so it is very sensative,,the pics are in various stages of completion, but you can see how it progressed, I think turned out nice...
    What do you guys think... :wink:

    John thanks for sharing. That is one nice looking piece of craftsmanship. Pete will be spoiled with that and may not want to leave the water to sell/ship his products.

    Guys I got to fish with this rod Monday for about 4 hours controlled drift fishing.
    (Puddle jumper had bumping HEHE) This rod's well balanced feels great in your hands. Also it allows me to feel everything that is going on with my bait while drift fishing. Shoot I had my bait 150 yards behind the boat Monday,still could feel each small rock, log, stick, and bite I received.
    The reel seat being put on wrong from normal.:wink: Man that is the Bomb. Comfort is what its about, I hold my rod for hours and anything that helps with comfort is a plus.:cool2:
    This rod is 7ft9" long, Rated for 15 to 40 lb line 2 oz to 8 oz's of lead. Graphite is the only way to go drift fishing, You have to know what your bait is doing at all times. As if your not feeling that sinker and bait moving, your going to stay hung up all the time.:eek:oooh:
    Did not get to handle a big fish on it Monday, But did reel in a few 5+ lb blues on it with heavy current (75,000 Cubic feet per second) it did great .
    Buddy thanks for building me what I think is the ultimate Controlled drifting Rod. I know we talked this over for a few weeks and looked at lots of blanks to get to this one.
    Guy's I have a video of this rod, that as soon as I get done with the editing of it. I will also post. And hope to have a video showing how well it does fishing. As I plan mounting the video camara to the boat and fishing for a few hours.:wink: Not going to be for big fish, but fishing for fish averaging around 10 lbs with it to show how well it work.
    Pete
