Great Rod, Ragen!

Great job, Ragen. Beautiful. Not sure I would even let that beauty leave the house much less fish with it. But of course, it must be fished.

I have been stuck in the mud after starting a 4wt bamboo rod @ Norris' man garage. That was four or five years ago. Right, Mike?

Still in the works; I now have a blank the need the ferrules, guides(i lost several of them), and all that there other stuff. Tip top to grip. Will take some work, but on the downhill side now. Won't look nearly as good as yours, but hopefully it will catch some fish. Just need to find a place to finish it.

I did score a couple of nice metal forms. But I am past that stage with this one.

That's my two cents. Great job Ragen.
