  3. Shorebound - Surf Beginners
    Hope you all had a great christmas. I have an idea. I recently got a hold of a fiberglass surf blank. It started as an 11' 4" however, I've since reduced it to 9'. My thinking is for space savings on jetties, the nine footer takes up less real estate. It only weighed 11 oz when it was...
  4. Stripers on the Fly
    in the epoxy. I tried like hell but this is how they came out. Should I care? (who am I kidding, the fish may not care but it'll drive me nuts) What can I do to make these better, maybe a thinner longer hook?. It wants to be round, how do I get a more torpedo like shape? This style has a...

  13. Rods And Custom Rod Building
