WTB leather rod tube

I am looking for an old leather rod tube about 4 and a half feet with a 2" rod opening. The more beat up the better!

You'll most likely have to buy a new one from Arne Mason and drag it around behind the pickup for awhile to get the beatup look you desire.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB

How many miles do you think it will take to get that "worked in look"

Probably however many miles it is to the Maitland and back just remember to take the rod out first!! if you want you could keep the old Clan in my truck till you've finished working on the tube

Bob Meiser had a fellow do some up for him that were outstanding.....

Maybe that's the same fellow Poppy is talking about; sorry I don;t know his name.

Bob has links to both Arne Mason and Robert Cochrane. Both of these gentlemen make high quality leather products for the angler. Bob's website has links to both. http://www.meiserflyrods.com/links.html

Cost

Just a word about the cost of these fine goods....

My friend Gary Slang ( from Michael & Young) did some custom leather reel cases a few years back. The process involves soaking the hide for a number of days then molding it while it is still slimy wet.

Anyone who is prepared to do this and make fine leather items should get whatever they ask for in terms of price. They earned it!!!!!
