Varnished Rod Section
The Whole Section


< Home < Extreme Rodmaking < Varnished Rod Section - The Whole Section

I'd just finished wrapping a lovely 8 foot, 2 piece rod and it was time to varnish the butt section in my dipper. The way I do that is to mask off the ferrule and dip the whole works in the varnish right up to the winding check while clamping the hoisting string to a  "twistem" taped onto the reel seat. Everything went fine except that I dropped the entire butt section 48" long down into a tube of varnish 60" long. Geez, what a mess!! Varnish all over the cork grip, varnish all over the reel seat, varnish all over the floor, varnish all over me and then I had to remove the varnish tube from the floor and fish out the butt section!! This is strictly not recommended procedure!  (Ray Gould)
