Here's a couple formed out of Bocote and Michigan Rock Maple. They are married to Thorne Bros 26" Quiver-sticks. Reels are attached with 3M VHB.

If I did this right you should be able to follow the link to a previous post with explanation.

Really quite simple to do if you have a lot of time (which I do) patients (not so much) and can accept failure on a very regular basis. Failure, I find is something that I have excelled at most of my life. You only get to see pictures of the stuff that turns out kinda nice...

I've seen a lot of beautiful work on here and have received much information that has inspired me.

I truly appreciate all the kind comments.

Although the handles may have a different look, the rods are fully functional, with should I say, a more mature approach and care... wink

Thank you.

Reel is attached with 2 sided tape, 3M VHB. VHB = very high bond. I have found that some of the reel choices of recipients require some minor modifying so as to insure a good bond.

Although this piece of equipment (rod & reel) is fully functional, some care is required in using it. It's all how one takes care of there equipment. Nothing sadder to me then a guy carelessly tossing a rod in a bucket that contains many other items free to rattle around. Well, that's another subject and I don't want to go there... sick

Those are really something, be hard for me to use being so beutiful, but i dont by equipment to put on the wall an look at, how would that bond hold up in cold weather or would it be a system to use in a perm. house wher its controled temp. primarily where i fish. Really awsome work.

Boar, thank you for your comments and questions.

When these rods leave, I always share with the recipient that there could be failure on the adhesive (tape) with out proper care and handling. I encourage recipients to please bring them back if they have any trouble. By no means does one have to baby them, care for them, yes.

I personally don't have one. I did have one a few years back but a gentleman who seen me using it was so intrigued by it and wanted it so bad, I reluctantly sold it to him on the spot. He commissioned myself to build him 5 more that he gave away as gifts.

I'm not sure as to how many handles/rods I have put together but I will guess it's over 50 and under 100. I've had 5 or 6 come back for new reel adhesive. One has come back for a broken tip after the dog got tangled in the line and dragged the rod across the lake although the reel stayed in place. Another one has been back 3 times for broken rod ends and reel adhesive replacement. The brother of this guy has shared with me that he does not take care of his equipment.

I know this probably doesn't answer your question but I suspect you might be a little more caring of that beautiful rod that Chad created for you because it's special... wink

    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!
