Not sure if anyone has seen this yet, but I thought I would put it up anyway...an insight into what goes into a truely custom rod (and Mikes new 5 weight!!)

That was interesting to watch, Kinda fits with my whole concept of the thing.

There is another rather interesting video where David explains his DNA concept...basically a custom rolles extra section to take any 4 piece rod and convert it into a longer rod, so..a 9 foot 5 weight can become an 11 footer. Fantastic concept!

Nice to see proper craftsmen at work and coming up with innovative ideas!

Hi Sandy,

Thank's for the comment.

The footage has been shot. It is just getting time to edit it all into a semblence of order. It has been a busy start to the year. 

I was really surprised looking at the footage, as I'm sure you will be when I post it on YouTube -  just how many hand & machine process's a rod blank goes through before it becomes a finished fly rod.  I just take it as part of the working week, but looking at it - it really is surprising.

I'm not sure how it can be reduced to the under 10 minutes YouTube need? It will need to be a whistle stop sort of show to get it all in.



Regards,

David.
