    This is a custom handle/reel insert I turned from Alaskan Birch Burl. These pieces have a lot of birdseyes, burls and flame throughout. I used an aluminum downlocking slip ring hardware for the reel seat. Balances really nice on a 7'6" 3/4wt, 4pc Fly Rod.

    Dick Meirowitz of Blue Point, NY with the 220 Lb. Yellowfin Tuna he caught using the Neptune Roller Guide Rod Built by Capt. Neil Faulkner of Sayville, NY The Neptune Spiral/Acid Roller Guides are manufactured by All American Roller Guides and are available from MudHole Tackle & Merrick Tackle. These Guides are a breakthru in Standup Big Game Tuna Fishing, due to the comparative ease of landing Big Fish, which these Spiral Wrapped Guides make possible. Notice the extremely small size of these guides in the photo, especially when compared to other type of roller guides. Although extremely small, these guides have more than adequate clearance for wind on leaders. The guides are rated for 200 Lb. line Test.

    Detachable fighting butt showing detail of the ebony butt cap consisting of a solid silver coin (three penny piece from Britain dated 1921) inlaid in recessed mammoth ivory. After the photo had been taken I realized that I had put the detachable butt the wrong way around so that the coin appears upside down in the photo! I suppose the photo could be redone, although I am certain that the general idea will be conveyed without the need for this!

    Rod Alignment Dots

    Alignment dots make it easier to assemble a rod. It also prevents twisting/stressing the sections when aligning. On the female ferrules, I applied a layer of Flex Coat Lite over the wrap (let it cure), drew the dots with a silver gel pen, coated with Krylon Workable Fixatif (let it dry), then the final coat of FC Lite. On the male ferrules, I marked the dots on the bare blank (leaving space between male and female dots for future rod wear), applied fixative and I coat of FC Lite. The silver trim is a 2-turn band, learned from Ken Preston's web site video. Thread color is Gudebrod Garnet, with CP.

    Another view of my first two fly rods built on Hexagraph and GUSA blanks. The fish was caught 50 million years ago. NOTE: This photo has been uploaded again because the first version was too dark.
