Looks and performs like a superb rod :Hat:

My word that is some exploit and a half - very well done indeed.

You jammy...... :). It was great to land it for you.....first attempt straight in the net. Very lightly hooked as well, just in at the back of the upper lip. Super start!

Fabulous looking fish.

Andrew, the Whopper Stopper MkIII – have you been able to achieve the taper and strength of the original without needing to resort to double building? How does it compare weight wise to a MkIV? I'm very interested in this rod, it might be exactly what I'm looking for.

Hi Beresford ,Well i have made a MKIII and although i cant remember where i read a comment from Richard Walker.The gist of it was there was no need to double build .Yes it would make it stiffer,how much? but it does make it a lot heavier and its a lot more difficult to make . You see all you would have to do is build the diameter up to make it stronger,. Anyway i built a MKIII for a client single built. It felt very strong and it had a much faster taper than a MKIV with loads of back bone in the butt. It is a rod for big fish or for hook and hold tactics. I made this one with a shorter handle so i whipped it same as the MKIV.

They are on a 10-12 month wait, the idea is you place an order then save, my next rod is almost ready :huray:

That's what's on my mind. Problem is I have such an erratic income that committing to buy anything that I can't pay for there and then in cash is a tough call for me but one I'm sure I'll overcome.

A days grayling fishing with Andyb on the Dove .We had a terrific session with lots of fish, grayling, dace and chub.
The Nottingham Style Roach makes a superb grayling rod, its quiet versatile and it had to be because i hooked up with a very powerful fish which turned out to be a fabulous dove specimen,short,stocky and immaculate, the scales went to 9lb . Wow great fish on my favorite float rod. 3lb hook link and size 16 double maggot.
