Do you store these in ways they are displayed, out for all to see, or do you have to keep them in boxes, stashed away until you want one of them?

Mr Frank. I store my fish poles in metal tubes. Keeps them safe from breaking when I am not fishing.

I've got the rest of the sections done. The color of the new thread is amazing. This is what it would have looked like fresh from the factory.





The rod is not completely done yet, I still have to varnish the tip section and put on the final coats of varnish on the rest.

Those are stunning wrap colors. Looks great!
You had mentioned moving to Idaho? I'm close, 5 miles as the crow flys.

Not sure what a "Bunco" is. I fish the NFCDL, Joe and MT rivers a lot.

Little NF has a lot of meth heads in the campgrounds, I avoid it during the summer. Above Prichard on the main stem NF is great, just about any pull off will have a trail to the river with a good run or pool and fish. Tee Pee Creek has good fishing also. Prichard Tavern makes a great burger.

Ya it looked great (NF). Water was too high/cold. Fish were hanging in back eddies I couldn't get to. Haven't heard about the "issue" with the Little NF, but I'll still go this summer.

As dry as it has been in the lower lands, the mountains  got a good snow pack. River should be fishable mid to late June.
Keep in mind the Pack river and the Moyie. And a few miles more the Koot is always worth  checking out.
