Ok so some time back i got caught up in the idea of a wooden fly fishing handle.
For those of you that dont flyfish, most handles are cork or at least lined with cork "fat cork washers" and sanded down.
Seeing those beauty of a peppermills in segment form here i though mmh let me ask the question of the greater brain trust here.
See what i mean by wooden handle by looking at the article (pdf) that i have linked to below.
So what say the jury and fly fisherman out there. Do you think this is a viable idea or is it only cosmetic.
My concern is the weight being added but i can also see where that could be a good thing.
Flyfisherman are huge tradditionalists so i dunno i am thinking of this for me not anything else.
Would you convert your rod to a wooden handle??
If so what wood? and finish?
