Thanks...staying on the farm and spending a couple hours a day in the forge.  Bear bone stained in Sun Tea and blade fit with post. Plus working on other things too...like a Bamboo Backed Osage longbow.

You could add "Master" on that sign on your li'l porch there... that is very, very cool!

doc,
As you may know the tippit is the end of the fly line that attaches to the fly.  My son who is a blacksmith in Crested Butte, CO made that sign for me with the metal fly!

Appears you're not the only talented one in the Clan then, Hoss!  Kudos for your son making that for his ole pappy! Very Nice, but you are a master craftsman, IMO!
