One such person is my friend, Joaquin, from Spain. He's a very nice guy & a talented rod maker, too. But he also makes these awesome bodkins with bone handles & inlays in them. They are truly a work of art. Earlier this year Joaquin was kind enough to give me a couple of these that he made. I must say, these are, by far, the nicest bodkins I've ever seen. There so gorgeous that I just had to show them to you here. Just look at the detail in his workmanship.
A really neat thing is the hook inside the end of the handle below. That's a very nice touch indeed!!
The fly fishing community is filled with generous & talented individuals for sure. Thank you Joaquin!!
