Samurai tippet material

I think I will order some. Paul, do you have any recommendations on sizes for my kind of fishing, stocked rainbow, to make leaders or should I just use them as tippets? Which size tapered leader do you recommend if any?

Global Warming

I have kind of a big problem with GMO crops since for example MonSanto acts as follows: They sell their seeds to farmer A and in the bargain aquires all the land they grow on. The crops are developed to not be affected with Glyphosate so they bomb the fields with it to kill all weeds and pollute the...

Leather case for the Hot Torpedo rod tube

t.z. wrote:Very nice. How much you'd want for such a tube? I don't have metal tube for my HT4 though. I have th version before which is a plastic tube in a cordura cover. So the job would be slightly different.

Cheers,
Thomas
Thank you Thomas. I'll send you a pm.

Leather case for the Hot Torpedo rod tube

Thanks Paul and Vince. The stitching on the back side was a b*tch to do. Especially since I messed up about 10 cm in to it and noticed it when I had done 1/3 of it so I had to undo everything down to the mistake and do it all over. It took at least 2,5 hours to complete the stitching... [img] 201801...

Leather case for the Hot Torpedo rod tube

That looks awesome!!! Whats the additional weight of the leather stuff? Cheers, Fla Thank a lot Flavio! I haven't got a clue what the additional weight is since I didn't weigh the material before I made it. But I might be able to find out if I cut a piece for a new one and weigh the straps and addi...

Leather case for the Hot Torpedo rod tube

In my correspondence with Paul prior to buying the Hot Torpedo, I mentioned that I maybe would make a leather case for the rod tube and now it's actually done. It's the first time I've done one so it's not a 100% perfect if you ask me but it's close. So here's some pics of it. I hope you like it. I ...
