Pink Camo

4 posts in this topic

Well, my daughter is no longer a huge fan of pink. She now likes camo, pink camo, and lots of black. Here's a couple of pictures of a rod that is currently drying. Need to have it ready for vacation next week so we'll get back to the labels and weave when we get back. It's a 6'6" M walleye/bass rod on a Lamiglas blank ( GFW78-2M, we have too many St. Croix Premier M- M/L rods at the house so time for something different). The handle is cork with a pink camo pattern imprinted on it - fairly cool. The blank is a matt black, the guides are Fuji concept guides (BYAG), thread is Guidbrod black metalic, with Sulky metalic pink trim band. Sort of stealthy, not too girly look. My daughter likes the look, we'll see how it works this weekend.

Did you buy the cork that way, or did you order it? That sure is different, you aren't gonna see that everywhere on the water. Nice job!

It's a handle kit from Mudhole. It's fairly neat. It's cork and then a film is laid over it. Very nicely fused into the cork. It will probably wear off eventually (oh well) but it does seem fairly tough, a bit of alcohol didn't react with the film which is a good sign. There are regular camo handles too as well as camo rod blanks. Kind of fun.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
