Bank sticks

Post by Harry H » Mon Apr 21, 2014 7:59 pm

A couple of bank sticks to go with the rod rest I made a few weeks ago
Thats as close as I want to get with the camera :Chuckle: I wanted them to match my mark 4 that Paul Cook restored for me.They are both made of split cane and they have red whippings and thats where the similararity ends still we have all got to start somewhere :Hat:

Cracking job Harry!
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.
