All it needs is a little t.l.c.#fixerupper#restorationproject#tlc Designing in the dark. Will this piece continue to evolve past the apple juice bottle and fishing line stage of design or will it forever be forced to live in purgatory never reaching its crescendo.

I was given this plane by my father out of his antique tool collection and it's a beautifully primitive wooden plane used in the process of making wooden barrels and more specifically in the fitting of the lid to the inside of the (Howell) or the groove on the inside of the barrel to create a waterproof seal.I also like to think that many a barrel of whiskey,beer or wine might have been stored properly thanks to this tool.#antiquetool#marks500thpost#woodenplanes#artisanbuilders#onetreewoodwork I saw this tip @tenkarabum to utilize hook keepers made by Fuji so that the Tenkara line,tippet and fly could be wound up and be kept on the rod instead of a separate spool . Then you can keep the whole fishing package inside the case ready to fish at a moments notice. Throw it in the truck,boat or backpack or all three and when the moment or the fish presents itself your prepared.#fishbum#tenkarabum#tenkararodco#backcountry#fly
