    Mike is building the rod himself. Scott at ARC has turned him into a rod building monkey. [​IMG]

    that is some VERY nice work. youre gonna be real proud of it when it is finished. just take your time dude. dont be like me. when i build a rod for myself, i want it to be in the water within 4 days! hahaha. one of my rods is still missing the turks head knot at the front of the cork tape handle and ive fished with it twice already hahaha.

    Guys...the pics dont do this wrap job justice! Very nice, tight , clean wrapps...and the colors are AWSOME! I joked withMike, that im going to use that color pattern for the new production rods....that went over like a fart in a crowded elevator! He is a natural at wrapping ....and has learned more in his first 20 rods ...than most do in 50! GREAT JOB MIKE!!

    I think I can honestly say that you are a good friend and I really enjoy the hell out of fishing with you. So please dont take this the wrong way Mike, but YOU SUCK!!!! I am so jealous of you right now...Not only are you wrapping rods...but your able to wrap YOUR OWN....OH how I envy you at this point. Dude...you da man.
