Well, my '2 wt' casts a 3 wt line really well. I don't have any 2 wt lines to try yet, but at least it's not a 4 wt!View attachment 275854
Just varnishing up a 6' 9" 2 wt dedicated to my wife of 33 years. The 'Lil Bee'. Hoping to use it on some small streams this summer. Of course....could turn out to be a 3 wt... or a 1 wt....
Used Dave Norling's micro ferrules. Also my first attempt at a birch bark grip. Used some bark I scavenged from a favorite Hoh river run. Turned out like really heavy cork though. Nor sure if I didn't let it dry enough. A little heavy for a 2 wt...but she'll fish.
Just doing the final planing on an attempt of a 10' 6" 2wt three piece spey....we'll see : ).
I might be transforming a lot of perfectly good bamboo culms into really ornate, long, chopsticks.
That is really sweet Steve. Do you spin down the reel seat at the same time as the grip? Do cork seats require any extra protection from wear?
