Maple Burr Slider

A good friend of mine recently stepped down from the committee of my local angling club after 20+ years service, the club will be honouring him but I thought I would make him a little gift.
With our waters being very deep his favourite method is fishing the slider so I thought a nice slider style waggler for him.
The body is from Maple Burr, with a Yew log base that I've made large enough for an engraved plate to be added to base infront of the float.

The body is 6cm long, total float length is 22cm.

Lots of lovely features on this piece of Maple

The tip is Mahogany, the 2 darker lines are Walnut and the rest of the bristle is Birch
