Topwater Rod

Recommended Posts

FilePhoto-4.jpg

Recently finished my topwater rod. I saw a woodturning show on PBS and on one episode they were turning topwater lures and that gave me this idea for my topwater rod.

I used a Rainshadow RX7 CB70MH for the blank and turned the split grips using bass wood. Got myself an airbrush to paint the grips...used one of my 6 year old daughters umpteen butterfly nets to simulate the scales. (I had her permission).

I positioned the guides using the simple spiral method and ran 3.0 micros to the tip top.

It casts and fishes great!

Vary nice build Chad!

I love that blank, Great multi purpose rod for bass.

Yea, been out a couple of times. Now I find out they're closing the access to O'Dowd for 6 weeks. I'll probably give Thole some time this summer.

Sweet rod Chad. Wouldn't you think April early May or late Oct/Nov would have been a better time to shut down the access. Well, maybe not late Oct!!
