That is different. Have not seen that material used on a pen before. Came out great. How do you like that click pen kit?? Any troubles with them?? I am looking for a good click pen kit. Have a request for one.

Very nice! I grew up close to the Texas Gulf Coast and caught a lot of flounder. I noticed the cut on your skins and saw the circular piece missing at the top. Right off I thought that's where you cut the fish to remove the head and guts all at the same time. Thanks for posting the pen and brining back a bunch of "Good Ole Memories".

I like the Sierra Click pen no problem with the mechanism, but if you want a better one look at Beaufort pen kit and the Tempest pen kit is probably the best Click pen mechanism I ever seen and used, it look like a Slimline but tubes are odd diameter and I love this one better

That turned out well. May I ask how thick are the fish skins?

Thats pretty cool. I love it. I bet I would go great with the PSI fly fishing RB kit. First I've seen of fish skin blanks. I also saw my first ostrich skin blank the other day.

Both the Fish Skin and Ostrich are wonderful. Your creativity with casting is amazing. Keep us inspired Serge.

Be well.
