Finished Shane's rod and got it in the mail today. She is on her way back to Michigan. Hopefully she will be a good companion for Shane. I have to say this is probably my most favorite rod that I have built. Shane and I started talking two months ago about fiberglass, he asked me if I had time to finish a rod for him. A few days later I recieved a blank in the mail and I got started. This was a great project and I had fun.
