The question was simple. Can you make a younger brother for my RL Winston Leetle Fellar splitcane.

And when you get THAT question and you have the right blank for it, you never say no. The blank is one of the last remaining NOS of Tom Morgan.

The whole time building this rod it was a challenge, to keep everything in balance like the leetle Fellar.The cork grip has the same size. On request the reel seat part has to be as short as possible. I made the aluminium hardware more slimmer with a butt of POM (delrin).

Mildrum stripping guide and snake brand guides are wrapped with gossamer silk.

Even the rod sock and protection sleeve are red like the Winston instead of my own rod sock .

 

 

Hope you like it.

Perfect agate and Original Snake Brand guides wrapped with Pearsall’s Gossamer.

It is always nice to give this kind of rods a new life.
