Howdy, Hola, Kaixo, rod builders.  I just joined this morning.  My friend Jerry Poindexter told me it was a good site.  Well I am an old rod builder.  I have been building rods since '78.  I am retired from my regular job and from my rod business and just build as a hobby now.  I love to do weaves.  I also tie flies for my own personal use and to give as presents to some of my fly fishing friends.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Aussies for taking care of one of my uncles that was hurt in Germany during WWII.  He always says that Aussies are the greatest people on earth.

G'day Ellis,
Glad to have you on board!
We look forward to seeing some of your work.

I guess it goes both ways in regards to WWII.
Whilst we were in the USA earlier in the year we took a tour of a sub-marine in San Francisco (USS Pampanito) that rescued something like  100 Aussie POW's from a Japanese ship that they had torpedoed.
It had me buggered how they fit the 35 crew on the bloody thing, let alone 100 odd extra bodies!

cheers,
Owen
