Title: Some photos of the latest experiments

First one is the 10 foot 2 weight French Nymph special.
Lemke seat, Sake Band guides (superb), Fuji thread and "Hends"  pink wire for trims. Really pops out, much nicer than metallic thread. I chose the wire as its what I use on a lot of the nymphs this rod will be throwing.

And then this next one is a 5 weight streamer rod for chucking Wooy Buggers and the like. Just started it, but am playing about with the Winn grips. I kinda don't want to like it...but I do. Reel seat is very nice and came from Sweden.
