New from SA

Post by Frogstar » Sun Dec 03, 2017 2:10 pm

Hi all

thanks for accepting.

I'm from South Africa and have been building cane rods about a year. Nothing commercial at moment, just for myself and friends.
My favourite taper is the Lee Wulff Midge but am currently building 2 X PH young Midge rods with bamboo ferrules.

I enjoy buying, collecting and selling old reels. I currently have a number of hardy reels, perfects, st george, bougles and recently a Eureka which I acquired to compliment my PH young midge. I also and a bunch of American fly reels.

A hearty welcome, Sir.
