Well finally I'm getting up a head of steam again in my rod making. For some reason I have had a hard time getting on a roll with my rod making but I think I have some momentum again! I got two and a half rods glued up today (most of these sections have been planned up for a few months now just waiting for some glue and binding ). This part of the rod making process is a little hair raising because if you have something go south, you can trash a week's work on each rod real quick. The glue up went well and I only had one section give me a gasp for a moment (but all is well ). You ask why two and a "half" rods glued up in this session? Well I got tired of planning bamboo and decided to glue up what I had ready, the base will get planned up soon . I have a Payne 197 7'6" 3 piece 5wt medium flamed, Leonard 50D 8' 3 piece 5wt flamed and a tip section for a Para 14 7'9" 2 piece flamed. I'll get the base planed up soon I hope. Here is a shot of the sections in the binding string in the drying cabinet.
