Real Fast

Went up to the river after work and caught a fish. An emerger did the trick.


These are the strips and the handle waiting to be glued up. Box Elder burl, chokecherry burl, cedar, walnut and maple make up the handle. I glue all the pieces in the handle to make a rectangle 2" x 6". Then I cut the shape out on the bandsaw, and then touch up it up with a drum sander.

Good day on the Provo. Used the same rig all day, prince and a rainbow warrior. I found a dead beaver the last time I fished this stretch, and I took a pic today. I am terrified of beaver. I'm pretty sure I'd rather run into a bear with cubs than into a beaver. Those teeth are nasty.
