Feels good to be inspired again. 2012 was so nuts I had no time to woodwork.
Just finished a fly rod wrapping jig and took it out for a spin at the Kentukiana Fly Fishing show put on by the Derby City Fly Fishers. My good friend Gary Krebs and I represented our local fly fishing club Tippecanoe Fly Fishers. Gary is a very talented inventor and fly tyer. Here’s a link to his instructional videos and his fly tying products.
I have been building many fly rods lately and wanted a nicer rod wrapping jig. It’s modeled after the Flex Coat wrapping jig but I added brass hardware and gave the rod supports a way to slide. Finish is Watco medium brown and Watco satin poly. There’s a rare earth magnet in the lower right to hold a razor a ruler.
