    James Reid 10'10" 5/6wt Bamboo Trout Spey

    James Reid has started the 10'10" 5/6 wt spliced ferrule trout spey. I can't wait to get home to put the wood to some fish with it!

    I will post pictures of the progress as I get them. So far he has picked the culm and begun the flaming.





    He has definitely started the rod much earlier then anticipated.

    Chris,

    Looking good.

    I should have all of my new sticks with me, so you will be able to try them all if you'd like.

    Here is the reel I will be putting on this rod. 3 3/4" St George. It came with two spare spools so I will also have a spool lined for the Powell as well.

    Is that the same guy who owns all those drug stores in NYC?

    He is one hard working dude.

    Must have 7 or 800 stores and still finds time to make rods. WOW.

    James sent a few more pictures of some of the sections before hollowing, after hollowing, and in the string!
