Completed Lacquering

I put the final coat of lacquer on my haze rod last night, and when I rose this morning I was so excited to see the results I forgot my state of undress when recording the happy moment:

The next step is to fire and re-straighten the rod, as it becomes slightly warped by the lacquering process, then wrap the pegs for holding line around the handle.  I have also started a new lacquering project, after buying this carved bait-box; I will be lacquering the inside red, and its exterior the same reddish-brown finish as the haze rod.

My next rod will be one for herabuna fishing.

  1. Sweet bait box, bub!

  2. Cheers, hopefully my lacquering will be an improvement on it!
    The first link in the Links on the right – いなり町東作 – will take you to the shop I bought it from, they have quite an interesting selection…

  3. Dear Sirs,
    I have a question for you.
    I’m trying a fishing rod in bamboo, made in Japan, not a fly rod, but a rod that I can use at lake.
    Can you help me?

    Best regards,
