Back to work

The rain has been falling all day today, which doesn't bother me right now as fishing will be taking second place to work for a while. Daft as it seems, after my manic roach sessions it feels like I'm having a rest building rods! I officially launched my new pike blank, the X-1 over the weekend and am already building a few up.

One pair is getting cork handles, and with the blanks being slimmer than those of my other 12ft pike rods I have been able to fit slimmer cork than I usually do. They should look rather suave when they're done.

No doubt after a week of rod building I'll be getting cabin fever...

In case you didn't know, I'm selling off my remaining stocks of Owner trebles. Not many left now.
