New Bob Clay Video - Taping Spliced Cane Rod

enjoy



PS. I've wondered once why Bob nonchalantly hangs $1800 spey rods and only God knows how expensive vintage Hardy Perfects on the side of his shed not worried about theft, then I heard and seen the black adolphus in this video and understood that there will never be a theft problem, lol

because Bob get turkeys! remain alert on any illegal activities!

Great video Wayne,
The taping process really is not as hard as commonly thought... it take less than 5 minutes and once it is done... you are done for the whole day, or whole trip! You never need to check the "ferrules" anymore and you will have a "near perfect one piece rod" as Bob mentioned. THe trick for me is to tape the both end of a splicing site with small piece of tapes to prevent wobbling. Then, move the tape along the axis with constant pressure as shown in the video.. I really wish graphite rods can install this splicing ferrule system also.

Dear God!

That took me back close to 60 years, and Mr. Cole's in Canada. 10-12 years old and we went through that. His hands on mine, wrap, tape, cast with a Green Heart.

Bob Miz in the out-back?
