Any of you guys got one or two of these?
Have ordered a custom Vom Hoffe styled reel in all black; for Trout Spey in the two handed 5 wt. 13’0” rod range; just have to sit back and wait 36 months or so, now!
Was wondering if anyone has one of Williams reels and can share the eye candy, by way...
Do the resins and fibres deteriorate over time and use - and how so?
How many years of continuous use should be expected from a premium blank, at an average of 1 full day fishing per week?
What generally craps out first - cork, carbon blank, ferrules, guides, reel seat and fittings, or the...
Well it’s been a while since my last enquiry on this subject, and I was wondering if between then and now, anyone has splashed some dosh and given it a good go?
For myself, I am amping it up with a few recent additions to the quiver - that have yet to turn up, from a recent trip to the good...
I have used both simple candle wax, just rubbing a piece of plain white candle on the spigots. And also the Loon black coloured jointing compound.
Some recommend tape, but it is a bit of a chore.

Cheers and many beers!

The Tukituki river, my very local river was up and pretty dark looking, so thought I would give the tying vice a whirl, and do a few Pritt type flies.
Do you leave it as it came, to age and colour with use?
Do you apply a once only treatment, or a frequent dab and rub of something?
Do you clean it with anything, or just wipe any **** off that you notice as you go?

Has anybody got any actual experience with these DH rods they can share?
Am quite keen on the 11'6" for 6/7 wt. to use on big rivers, with big trout, instead of a 'switch rod' (I have no intention really of overhead or single hand casting with it).
Haven't seen any proper actual reviews on the...
