Turning cork grips.

After a long winter and a late cold spring its nice too finaly reach the final stages of the three rods i'm bulding this winter. So last night it was time too try out some new styles on the corkgrips for the rods.

A simple rig consisting of a hand drill and a bit support that the rod can lie in.
A rig that works really well if you do not have a lathe

The nearest rod is a Garrison 209 7'5" 5wt with a slightly different shape of the corkgrip that Garrison used to make on his single-handed rods. The rod in the middle is a Eusties Edward's 7' 4wt, and the last one is a Leonard 40 "Letort" 8' 4wt.
