Hey folks, I wanted to post this as it was brought up before by fischadler, but because of licensing, the pictures couldn't be posted until the magazine was released. Well, it is and here you go!
Rodmaker is a worldwide publication that reaches about 60,000 rodbuilders. Needless to say, its like making the cover of SI!! I have developed a process for wrapping shell Mother of Pearl around a rod blank and its one that no one else has been able to figure out until now!!! Very exciting for me to say the least. I hope everyone is having a productive fall and looking forward to a productive winter at the tunnel. Jeez this year is flying by, it will be Christmas before we know it!!!:yes:





Tight lines.

Congrats on the cover- bet you will be swapped with Christmas orders :yes:.

Congratulations Kevin. All your hard work is paying off.
Here is a picture of a Live Lining rod Kevin and Bill O'Brien made earlier this summer.
Kevin applied his Abalone technique for this unique and extremely functional spinning rod.

p.s. The reel is a Fin-Nor MegaLite 4000. The rod is great but the jury is still out on this reel's performance.

I came on to edit and saw all these replies! THANKS!!! I wanted to add that if you are interested, take a look at the Rodbuilding forum on Tidalfish. There are a lot of great rod pictures from many rodbuilders on there. Take a look.

They are beautiful. I just had a regular rod broken in two by someone other than me. If it had been one of those homicide detectives might have been involved.

Not sure I'd want to invest in one of these to fish with since I have problems in beating the snot out of my gear. They are certainly beautiful works of art. Would love to see more pics...

Actually with a custom rod, they come with a no questions asked warrenty. So, if your friend breaks your rod, we break HIS leg, no questions asked.

Seriously, with our warrenty, if your rod breaks for whatever reason while fighting a fish, it gets replaced...... No questions asked.

You should get that when you spend your good money for a rod.

I will post up some pictures when I get a chance. Or, you can go to the rodbuilding page and take a gander. The page is here on tidalfish. Another option is to go to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket and do a search for my page (kevinknox) and you can see hundreds of pictures of my work, all segmented into catagories by type of fishing.
