    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.

    Cobalt Blue CTS Blank Guide Wrap

    I wrapped 12 different color bands and showed it to Ron. Then I wrapped several different trim bands with the color he chose for the main guide wrap. All Madeira thread; along with the AMTAK hologram frame/hologram ring guides. This was all of his choosing. Had to throw my new ink pen in there, too!!!

    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.
