This gallery shows the Lemke Reel Seats with various domestic US and exotic woods. The wood has been dried to approximately 5-8% moisture, then under almost full vacuum, impregnated with resins (stabilized) and then cleaned-up and staged for use in making beautiful fly rods as you may have seen on this site. The exotic woods that by nature contain natural oils do not get stabilized with this vacuum process. The natural oils are allowed to remain in the wood as they should as they are just locked in with the final finishes. All domestic woods are stabilized.

FLY RODS, REEL SEATS w/ WOOD INSERTS AND OTHER ITEMS LISTED ON THIS SITE ARE EACH HANDCRAFTED BY ME.   I do not resell any products that I don't create myself to ensure the highest quality control. The reel seat hardware for my fly rods is crafted by Joel Lemke. His "metal artwork" is like jewelry that adorns my fly rod creation.
