fly box building tr- devil makes work for idle hands

[report]

I had done this a while ago as some of you may know but I had to keep it under wraps until now.

the material used is huon pine.
and these particular pieces are cut from one section of root.
it is very rare to obtain uncut... especially when it's over 2000yrs old.

Stunning. A lot of blood, sweat, and tweed must have gone into those.

That is livin' right. Nice work.

Believe me, they are way prettier in person than can be portrayed in a photo and it is true they did delay a beating. Instead of Aggers having the honor the beating was left to that fish with a tail "like a dustpan." :cool :cool

Did you say 2000 years old?
So that's what you meant in your hint.
I thought it had to do with the pen.
You know how to carve, build and give gifts better than anyone I know.
