I can make sea-fishing rods as well…this is my mid-water whiting rod I made last Autumn but ready for use now. The red urushi has come up nice and bright and the mother-of-pearl is really nice now (although its true beauty is not done justice in the digital photography). I still haven’t worked out a way to photograph a fishing rod in its entirety and still retain the required resolution, so here are some close-up shots only.

And also a close-up view of the mother-of-pearl inlaid wraps on the rod:
