« Part 3: Gluing up the birch bark Part 4 of Fly Fishing Rods series Part 5: Redoing the grip »

I am back to it and with the goal of completing my first fly rod by Christmas – it’s a Christmas present.

I am pretty excited about how the rod handle came together. I am working on finishing the handle this week and will be assembling the rods next week. Look for an update next week.
