    Another year, another wish! Happy, happy birthday my friend!
  2. I am starting to get excited. Can't wait to see and fish the rod. Out of curiosity, what weight do you think it is? I am thinking either a 6 or 7wt. Seems to me that I started with a 7 when I first got the rod. But that was so long ago I can't remember. Seems to cast a 6wf fairly well.

    Hugs back at you!

    Fully hand scraped to remove the old varnish. Marked for new guides. Tips straightened.

    Just out of curiosity ... when the rod was last rewrapped, were the guides put back in their original positions?
  6. Betty. I am glad you are having a ball with the rod. If you think a satin finish would look better than a high gloss than satin it is.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Fantastic!! I'm having a ball with your rod!! I think it would look super with a satin finish on it, rather than a high gloss. Had hoped you'd say that about the threads matching the agate!! Fun! Fun!!
    Merry Christmas!!

    Happy, happy birthday, from me and your rod!!
    Crazy lot of varnish on that puppy! Some of the edges were more round than edged!! Want to weigh in on thread wrap colors? How bout varnish finish? Satin, maybe?
    Again, happy birthday!
  9. Thanks Jim.
