It's mid January and I'm in the mood....the ice cold winds with snow in it is blowing outside, but down in the workshop it's warm and a nice smell similar to freshly made popcorn is in the air.... well that's the nearest explenation I have, trying to explain the smell of bamboo cocking in the oven.

Garrison 202E is the first rod I'll make this winter. Have read somewhere that this was Garrison's favourite taper. Built his 209 taper last winter and have used it a lot, it has become one of my favourites.
Garrison 202E I build for use in small streams, in the search for the "mysterious" Norwegian brook trout.
|Just love the colours on this fish.|
