I’m getting better at these!
The top rod is a Mesquite handle with a coat of tung-oil but it was kinda dull so I dipped it on clear epoxy.
The second rod is Texas ebony with few coats of tung-oil. That was actually a dried dead branch, they have the best color blends. I used 7w and 8w fly rods. These rods are for the sheepheads(fish) off the jetties now in season.

These are beautiful. I do some fly fishing as well, but have trouble finding time because I like to spend more time in my workshop. However, this would be unique gift for my brother how’s an avid fly fisherman. I would love to exchange some message with you so I can try to do one myself – as a gift.

Thanks for sharing!

WOW! Geri these are gorgeous! My husband would love one of these!

Hey, can you tell me the website of your client who purchase the Texas Ebony log to make flutes with? I think I met a flute player in AZ who has one of his flutes.

Where do you buy your rods from? Do you just epoxy them in a few inches deep?

Hi Mellie, I use drilling tools on my lathe and go in about 6-8”. I use to do it by hand but to much error to compensate for, but the right tools make it perfect and fun.
