6 months of planning, 7 friends (including my Aunt from Seattle) and 74 hours of work (I was slow and others had to assist me...hence the "tribal" in the rod)...
Originally I had planned to write out a thoughtful blog each day of the class but that was
completely unrealistic a bit

whatever memory I have left after a week of being inundated with bamboofly rod maker responsibilities.
Riley's sense of humor...my name is spelled Shannen!
Have I mentioned that straightening the strips almost killed me? Again, I will not bore you.
After this week, I have a new respect on every level for Bill's undeniable patience and seemingly endless volcano of talent. This week was special for a myriad of reasons...
Strangely enough, I really enjoyed planing the rod. Once I got into a rhythm, it was
I have skipped about 1000 steps but do you think that I may the first person to ever build a bamboo fly rod in big hoop earrings?!?
