One last tutorial saved via the Wayback Machine. This was from Mark Wendt documenting his efforts while making the rod Doug successfully bid on at a GOTC auction (in NC, I believe). I don't think he ever went past what you see here in what he documented, but it is interesting to follow. I believe Doug would vouch for the quality of Mark's work on this rod.

And that's where it left off. I wish Mark would come back.

I own four boo rods. I've owned as many as 8; I sold the other four. I have a Bill Abrams 5wt 7ft Dickerson tape that is a great rod. But the Dickerson Mark built for me is in a league unto it's own. I can throw 60 feet of fly line with it without sweating. It's a fast medium fast rod that throws a roll cast and over arm cast better than my Winston and Sage graphites. But where it really shines is when a fish is on. I have never had a zero day with that rod. It is magic with a fish on.
