Just started on this one today, super excited to finally add a 10wt to my lineup. Pictures to come as things progress as I'm building this one backwards. I usually build the grip and seat first but decided to try and wrap the guides first this time to avoid making a big mess of dust on my lathe again before I wrap. I will be fully prepared for the chum this year👍
Decided against going the switch route and keep it a single handed, I can always build a 10wt spey later if I want. Waiting for my cork press jig to come available to glue this one all up. This rod is going to be themed after my Grandfather and I am inserting a coin in the end or the fighting butt representing the last time I saw him, the year before Expo '86. I will call this rod "The Grandfather"
