We are a small NW museum. We believe this rod to have been built 1920-30 based on what little provenance we have. The guides are expertly attached. The fancy work at the butt of the pole mimics that done by sailors for a hundred years or more. The reel seat is a mystery. The guides too are a mystery. The signature area at the front of the butt has not yielded to our research. We think the rod was probably built to be a salmon rod, the base is 3/4 inch in width. We appreciate information on the guides, pole identification, and/or the reel seat.
This is my first build, and I am on the first runner guide. the tip of the guide foot is poking through the wrapping. The first two guides did not do this, do I need to sand the guide foot down? Also, is there any easy way to get the guides lined up properly? Or is this just a pain in the butt process?
