first attempt at morticed inserts which
create a dramatically swelled
butt. This one features twelve pieces of cane frtom about 4" above
the cork grip.... since it was an experiment, I experimented with wraps
and reel seat too.
re-wrapped this rod about two years ago, and installed a new reel seat
while I was at it.. Here are a few more current pictures.
The seat on the bottom is this rod.
