Due to having some components supplied by Sandy (plus answers to a lot of questions!) I thought I'd post some photos of my recent build. Think this maybe my 5th build but the first for about 8yrs. Still so much to learn and improve on. Any feedback or criticism welcomed.

Lemke LC1 black reel seat

Nickel silver winding check

Thank you Euan. Next is a rebuild of a Dancraft FTL 906-4. Gonna rebuild it without the butt section to give me a 7'6 4wt.

Sandy, thank you for the components and help with questions I bombarded you with.

Cheers
Dan

I have the 10 foot 4 and love it. Very underated blank.
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Hi Rob, I was thinking about building the 10 4wt too and selling my Vision Mag.

Do you use the 10ft for euro nymphing?

That's what it was built for :) I use it when fishing heavy bugs etc with a 2 weight Nano-Helix for French nymphing.
