Finally one can breathe out after a long Christmas celebration. It was not so much rod building as I had planned. But now it's the start of the new year and the plane blades are razor sharp and ready for action. I managed to get some hours in the workshop, so the tip section for the 7' 3 wt rod is finally ready for gluing. The planingform are set and ready for the but section. So now it's just to get started with the planing.

|Always a good feeling when control measurements show that the taper is correct.|
