    Ive been building rods for a long time, but am new to the gaff thing. How do these look with Turkshead knots?
    Here is the latest from the rod room. I told you guys that I am Ate up with Abalone, yes, there are inlays on this gaff also!!!

    I am just playing around with this gaff, but the ones that will be for primetime are stainless hook and shank, Seeker gaff shaft and abalone inlays

    Nice gaff...

    Nothing works better than a good calcutta gaff tho!

    I like the knot on the ends.


    The ones I've built with EVA grips can slip so I then
    add tag line for wrist which is more cumbersome to use.

    I like building gaffs more than building rods.

    Nice job.

    WOW, please be careful with that tag line! I was going to do that but if the gaffer hits a green monster tuna, and gets pulled, the gaffer is dead for shore! I would caution against doing that! At that point, you are tied to a volkswagon!!!

    10-4 on the tag lines and Green fish, The gaffs that I've built and given to friends that lost them.... requested a tag line, These gaffs were DoDo, Hoo
    Grouper, BFT suited gaffs with 2 to 3 inch gap. Big fish different deal for sure. Still like your grip idea.
