Octofloat Deluxe; new everything! Ferrules, rings, fittings and cork handle.

(remember this one Lucky Luca, got around to it in the end!)

Funny, my first thought was "that couldn't be my old one could it?"

Great job. My have taken a while but it's another saved and returned to service!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Looks great! I always thought the deluxe had a screw reel fitting but never liked never liked it so yours now looks so much nicer.

You're 'spot on'; it had a black screw (sliding) fitting originally but it was stuck to the cork and had corroded. That was the turning point for me, when I couldn't move that, and I decided to strip the whole rod 'to the bone' and replace everything. The cork handle is brand new, as are the black sliding reel fittings. It has clear glass butt and tip. Whilst not original spec, I think it's vastly improved and now a lovely rod.

My latest rod which I've been trying to make in time for the cane and pin match.
I've managed to finish the rod now all I have to do is learn how to use a centrepin. :Chuckle:
I used the Richard Walker taper for his 'Avon' rod from Rod Building for Amateurs, not to be confused with the Mk IV Avon.

It feels nice in the hand but I haven't yet given it a test run.
