Winter plans ??

Rate this topic

9 posts in this topic

Once the holidays are behind us and the winter doldrums set in, what is everyone planning for the winter ?

I have a lami 1081M that I bought last year and never go to. That will be the #1 thing I start this year.

I would like to do a blackfish stick for myself and a pair of fluke rods for my brother.

I'm not sure which blanks I will use for those yet.

Anyone else care to share their winter rod wrapping plans ?

My first stick for this winter will be a 10' conventional for chucking bait with 3 or 4 oz. I was thinking a Rainshadow 1208 or 1209. Then I'll build a 6'6" -7' fresh water spinner for my brother. I'll probably build one more but I'm not quite sure which direction to go just yet.

The family finally left so it's either watch a Jet Li movie, or put the grips on a Fisher 540 (fluke rod??). They are going to be back in 12 hours to start cooking dinner. I asked for the guides for xmas, so the rod might actually be done by the time dinner is served. smile.gif

I ended up going crazy with the Christmas money I had burning a hole in my pocket yesterday smile.gif .

 

Santa brought me a 10' 7 wt Dan Craft V blank as well as a 7.5' Rainshadow poping blank that I plan to do up as a light spinner.

 

Tim's been trying to convince me of the "power of the honey" for a tog rod and he finally did, so I have that one here and already mocked up icon14.gif .

 

Stopped at Bogans on my way home yesterday and picked up a 9' XH Gator Glass to wrap as well as an inexpensive 6' AmTek composite that will get done in pink & purple for the rug rat heart.gif .

 

The kid's rod got mocked up yesterday too, she showed great patience holding the cork for me as we reamed to fit the blank cwm12.gif .

 

So I have some fun stuff in store for this winter smile.gif .

I build over a hundred rods a season. I bought a tank and frame and I'm building a chopper this winter. Billy, watch that Viagra. I got one caught in my throat and had a stiff neck for a week. Now, I just take one a night to keep me from rolling out of bed. biggrin.gif
