I finally got around to finishing a fly rod for my son. It's a St Croix Avid 4wt, the grip is stabilized spalted maple with an elliptical made with an insert from a knife supplier in Texas. The reel seat is a pen blank from woodcraft.

Wow, Mark. That's beautiful. What did you use for the endcaps and did I see this in Park Falls? It sure looks familiar for some reason......Who sells pen blanks(wood,stabilized, or acrylic) that are a little larger than the standard(7/8?) I'd like to find something 1-1/4x 6 or larger. Someday I'd like to do a reelseat insert on a larger blank and 7/8 would'nt be large enough. Again, very nice work sir,,,,,Jim
