And then I would not have an excuse to experiment with handle materials ;)

Since when have fishermen been logical.  :X2
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Alex,

It's looking braw.   I'd right like a cast with a wooden handle, before I comitted to making one though! 

One dafty question though, see wtih your four section drier, how do you do the whippings at the end of each section?  Are they not held with the clamps and stop you putting epoxy there?

Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt

Any time you want a cast let me know I'm sure we can arrange something whilst at Haddo.

Handle section faces right, sections 2 & 3 face left & tip section is mounted onto a broken section of an old rod & faces right.

The end ferrules are not in the clamps, hopefully the below picture will explain.
