    TU Fred S. Burroughs Chapter Raffle Rod

    Here is the Rod that I built for the Fred S Burroughs rod raffle to benefit the Flat brook restoration.

    The Rod is a Payne 102 taper Hollow Built
    8 ft 2 tip 2 piece 5 wt. rod.
    Wraps are Chestnut Persall's Gossamer Silk tipped dark Brown.
    everytime I wrap a rod with this fine silk I wonder why I put myself thru the difficulty of working with this fine thread. But when the rod is finished I remember why.

    The wraps come out a beautiful translucent color and look like candy that was poured onto the rod. Just awesome.
    Matching espresso colored agate striping guide.
    The real seat is a beautiful and unique piece of Spalted Crabapple with Nickle silver Hardware.
    The cork grip is the finest quality Portuguese cork available.
    The pics do not do this rod justice as this is one beautiful rod.
    Hope you enjoy the Pics. and I'm sure there are still some raffle tickets available.












    Here's a pic of the rod at Junction Pool, always like to add a little Catskills flavor to everything I do



    Here's a pic of me trying to match the hatch, thought I saw a single midge over the water but nothing was rising.

    Re: TU Fred S. Burroughs Chapter Raffle Rod

    Great job, Ron! Many thanks, this should put us over the top for the first phase of our Flatbrook Restoration Project. I just hope some chapter board member doesn't walk off with that rod and claim ignorance....

    As TT mentioned, raffle tix can be purchased online at Home where you can also see our plans, a pictorial walking tour of the project, budget, etc. Thanks to all who have supported us to date! Also, we have our annual banquet coming up on March 26th and I know many here attend each year. Hope to see some of you that evening where we'll be drawing our prize winner for Ron's beautiful boo rod and our fly box and float trip winners as well.

    Re: TU Fred S. Burroughs Chapter Raffle Rod

    This rod raffle will put our chapter over the top to fund our Flatbrook River Restoration Project phase 1. Ron is getting it to me this Sunday at the Dette/Shannon's fly tying event in Califon at the Fire House in town. I may have to bring a reel along with me.....

    After our chapter banquet on March 26th, we'll be able to let you know what this rod grossed and netted for conservation work on the Flatbrook. I have it on good authority that the rod raffle is doing well for us!
