Ready for 2015 Trico Season

July is a long way off, but I am ready. Last summer, local rodmaker Bob made a 6’7″ 3wt rod that I really liked. So he and I did some bartering and I wound up with this near copy of his rod.

I made the reel seat hardware and the ferrules from Duronze (c642 aluminum bronze).
Bob’s wife Linda made a rod bag for it, then friend Steve donated a vintage rod tube.

Not bad for a zero cash transaction.
Just today I finished a bronze reel for the new rod. The wooden insert of the rod and the reel knob are both Brazilian tulip.

Earlier this week I shipped the first bronze reel of 5 weight size. It has two spools.
