Just received an email from Meiz and he has upped the ante:

I have just received a batch of old used Oak Scotch barrel staves and barrel tops from a distellary in Speyside, Scotland.

Willie Gunn sent them to me.

The wood is really beautiful, and has a sweet smell of Scotch !!!

I will use them to custom mill reel seat inserts and lower grips on a few of my rods....
Bob is offering a custom milled scotch barrel reel seat if you so choose to the high bidder!!!!

Thanks Meiz!

Congrats to Reely for winning the rod. I am sure you will be pleased.

Lets all thank Meiser as well for letting us auction off one of his rods. This will go a long way to pay server costs in the coming year. Thanks Meiz! You rock.

Big thanks to REELY too !!!

This is the second auction rod that Reely has been high bidder.

Last year was the FES.

Good on ya Bro....A strong supporter of the Spey Pages and Fly Talk.

Give me an E-mail and we'll set up a time to go over all of the call-outs for the MKS.

I'll also get Mike Kinney to build-up a shooting head balanced specifically for this rod.

P.S.

Still got the same contact phone number ?

Always enjoyed that one...};^)!!!!!!

had the number changed Big Boy!

Thank you for the donation. It is a pleasure to support the forum when Santa has a rod like this waiting. I still laugh about that phone number screw up. I'll be in touch shortly and in the mean time may you and your family have a Merry Christmas.

Thanks again for your generosity,
Jim
