I also like to make my own rods and I never thought to add wood to them.
Thanks for the idea.

TDominy – Don’t get much fishing done in Iowa from November – March. Helps pass the time and gives me a chance to enjoy two hobbies at once.

Nice! What did you use to finish them?

Been experimenting with finish, I like to keep the maple light, so as now several coats of poly. If I didn’t have the grooves I would have used CA. Not sure how it will hold up. Any one with a better finish please share.

Try Birchwood-Casey TruOil Gunstock finish. I have used it reel seats.

Knothead 62- Thanks, I have tried that on some duck calls and then waxed with Flitz rifle, gun & knife wax. On this rod I was afraid it would darken the maple so I did not try it. It did work out well on the calls.
