I recently finished a nice 7’ bamboo fly rod and needed a case. This one is maple; I stained it with Transtint dye, and then removed most with alcohol. This left just enough stain to emphasize the grain. This time I was able to book match the strips. The end caps are lacewood. The other case is lacewood alternated with cherry strips, with lacewood end caps.

The reel seat and cork grip were turned on the lathe.

A true classic which your granddaughter will treasure! She’s a very lucky young lady.
