    First try at wood lathe! Made new handle for my TFO 11' 5wt switch. Didn't like how long the handle that came with it. I always try to make things different and this is what I came up with. First try, not bad, but I will get better at this.

    Tried to make it look like one of my duck calls, maybe it will bring it some MOJO!

    Hi William,

    Nice job on the custom handle, and that reel looks "PERFECT" on that rod!
