I've been working on a large 4'x6' piece but took a break from the big one and did this to get something finished. Decided to post this while it is still wet. My old man did some fly fishing in his day, as did my grampa. I painted my grampa's fly rig a while back (ELMER'S RIG ). This one is similar, but actually a different reel and rod. I have 4 old bamboo rods from that era. They are pieces of art in themselves! This one is patented 1907.
