Well done the pair of you, it does sound as if you have created the perfect rod. :clap: :clap:

Sounds utterly wonderful. I also have that Five-zero day coming up this year and it might just have to be the day I get my name in the book for Carpathia.

Well gentlemen, today was the day. I am flabbergasted with what Andrew has achieved. In my humble opinion, it is the perfect combination of light weight hollow built cane providing balance, crispness and sheer beauty.

I've been lucky enough to use or handle Barder, Ted Oliver, Southwell, Aspindale, Cook etc. and what Andrew is crafting now is up there (and possibly beyond) those master craftsmen. I've warned Mrs Tengisgol that she will be having an uncomfortable night tonight; that rod is coming to bed with me.

Pictures and full report in a new thread in a week or so, once Quinquaginta has had a little test and I have had a chat to Andrew about his plans (he's so pleased himself, he's adding it to his range).

:Cool:

Great news Phil. Looking forward to the pics and a catch report!

Excellent to hear your reaction ... can't wait to see what's causing it ! ;-)

Evening Phil.... when you told me about the rod on Tuesday, at the Woodbine, :Hat: one question popped into my mind... what are you going to pair "Perfection" with.... reel wise...?

PS I found that Sealey Blank :Hat:

For the time being Aitch, I've got a lovely little Seldex that is absolutely mint. It's a three incher and only weighs six ounces to compliment the 11.5 of the rod. So that is it's reel to start with. I know they're not the most sought after but it is lovely. One day, maybe something more specific, but I prefer a solid spool and would want it to be as light as possible so need to think about it a bit.

Great re. the Sealey blank, let's get together and I'll show you the fly rod. Let me know what Saturday's suit you. Cheers.
