2008 seems to have been the year of the three piece rod.  The last nine rods I have made have all been 8 foot three piecer's, from three weights to five weights.  This three piece 8'  four weight is based on my Otter Creek taper.  I built this one for Marc, but liked it well enough that I want to make one for myself when I have time.

This standard cigar grip is my favorite shape and size on medium sized rods.  Beige wraps tipped dark brown balance nicely with the flamed bamboo. The reel seat filler is mesquite burl from a block of wood given to me by a Texas friend.
