Hey boy, stand up and salute when you see Old Glory! This is one of my favorite wraps. There ain't no place in this world like the good Ole USA.

That is what we call a cross wrap, same as making diamonds, chevrons, not a weave. It is a very old pattern that has been around a long time. I also did one of a confederate flag on a surf rod for a friend of mine down in the Valley.

Doc, that is a picture of a rod I made in '86. My wife found the picture while cleaning out a closet. Back in '78 at a boat show a fellow had a booth and was showing several custom rods. One was a rod with the flag wrap on it and the rod blank was a Kennedy-Fisher blank. I had never seen a rod so pretty and I struck up a conversation with him. He sold me some blanks and got me started doing crosswraps. Before that time I had been doing some simple stuff on Fenwick glass blanks.

That is a rod that I built in '86 using a Fenwick SP845 blank. Back then many companies offered white spinning and casting blanks.
