    Re: Final round up of the Rod Building Weekend


    Very much like the your finished work Shayne, I bet you're rapt with it, as you should be.

    I am bogged down with mine at the moment, I am going to wait until I can get the colour combo's I want in threads.

    Also one of the masters is going to run through the spacing calculations with me again, as I've lost my way.

    But apart from getting the butt wrap completed, the rod is ready to go fishing.

    Are you going to post a pic of the first fish???? regardless.

    Without a doubt, I might even save it for when we're down your neck of the woods.

    Way to go Shane looks like it turned out pretty well.
    That sticker idea has some great potential, I am just doing a rod for myself at the moment, may use the idea myself!!

    Waaaaaaack!!!!!!!! Thats the sound of me giving myself a solid upper cut.
    I might as well give my little bloke a doll and start making him wear dresses, it's about the same as giving him sporting gear in NSW colours. At least it's not Cronulla I 'spose.

    Wow I built a rod in me marine studies class at high school & I have to say it didn't come out anywhere near that good, my eyelets are a little askew to each other & I varnished the whole rod instead of just the strind & eyelet section, its shortish but bigger than a ugly stick.

    Re: Final round up of the Rod Building Weekend

    Hi Guys,

    I've finally finished my butt wrap, except for sanding the cork on the fore grip & the extra coats of resin, it's ready to get covered in scales, slime & guts.

    I had to get back to my mentor, Volvo for some help as I had gone a bit rusty on the spacing calculations. As I've said before, the man has the patience of a saint to put up with me, nothing is too much trouble.

    Anyway, I copied the pattern for this wrap from Visualwrap, a rod building site. It has a step by step section worth looking at.

    cheers r.
