My fly rod building project has come to its end. That's right, the rod is actually finished.
Looks like a fly rod, doesn't it?
Final part of the project was not made by me, but by mrs opax, who was very kind and wrote the inscription.
I thought a lot about the inscription. Candidates like "opax #1" were quickly abandoned. "Resembles-a-rod" would have been better, but I ended-up with "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida".
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida is over seventeen minutes long song by Iron Butterfly. It was released 40 years ago. According to a legend, the title was supposed to be "In The Garden Of Eden", but someone had written "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," possibly while drunk or intoxicated, on a demo copy.
I have a new slogan for my blog:
If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing.
