just wondering about seaoned builders thoughts on building

I was thinking about how I enjoy putting a rod together. I build for myself and a very few friends. I've been building since the mid 70's. I've probably not built 50 rods total. I relish the thought of being able to fulfil a need for a particular technique/fish. case in point: I built a friend on th...

Re: Where can you buy Matagi parts?

I don't think mudhole sells matagi components except for their private (Mudhole)label reel seats. no matagi branded components to be found on website. wonder if they might do a special order?

Re: Using Loops on Jerkbaits -- when necessary??

if i'm tying straight to a wire eye, I (almost) always use a loop knot. exception is when there is a split ring in play. that what I learned to do as a youngster. in my mind's eye I could just see that little rapala humping it's tail off because of that loop knot. any success with rapalas/minnow bai...

I did have a another parka-columbia- I used as well. no problems with it, either. REI jacket is very light, has a lot of good features-ad...

Re: What do you guys do with your hard bait box.
