Super job Paul - looks like the thread was spot on and the guides look good too :clap:

I've built the hande and have split and roughed the strips for mine - to be completed during the summer break :Thumb:

Splendid work, Sir. :Hat:

A lovely rod.

Bill used to photo my fish and do features with Bill Rushmer and myself. We did one on the Mole at Esher with chub. Pictures somewhere.
