    Cheers Woody.

    Might even try making a reel next year with an agate line guide. I love red agates or banded agates.

    But there’s still a long steep learning curve to go.

    Thanks Sleepy.

    I found a very nice JW Young Reel for a 3wt rod. It has a red agate – I love red agates – the agate was cracked and the sharp edges will cut my fly line so I decided to take matters into my own hand and replace the agate.


    A nice agate but cracked wont do. I bought a nice replacement that’s a reasonable replacement – same as the Hardy Perfect size, a little thicker that the original JW Young but I had little choice.



    I love using collets and seeing the agate go into the bezel. Rolled over the edge with a spinning tool

    Lovely stuff Boris. I really try and appreciate your attention to detail. I’m sure I miss some, but golly, it looks so good.

    Thanks, Steve.

    I’m still a long way from making an entire reel form scratch. That’s going to be level of detail far beyond this.

    Finesse…. I believe that is the correct term of reference for work of that standard.  Very nice to see and envy.

    Cheers…J

    Beautiful as always. Looking forward to share a few tastes on a stream or lake chasing the browns with our cane rods.

    The company is what makes it and the conservation and the Barack or a good single malt and the time to enjoy a cigar.

    We have done that many times over the years, let it continue.
