Not exactly recent but I got a flurry of requests from fishing acquaintances last fall for Olde English 6' 2wts. Four altogether. These are great little rods.

All but the cocobolo seat was hand-turned and finished.

Very nice, indeed. I have that rod too; got it from Jangles (Rod Zimmerman); beautiful build. Thanks for letting us take a look.

The one with the redwood burl is mine and the one with cocobolo insert is my buddy Kurt's. We love those rods for small stream fishing. My buddy Charlie wanted one too, but when I called Randy he said he had built enough of these rods for the time being, and besides he was remodelling his house. By the way Randy, did you finish that remodelling project? I always shudder any time I think of going through that again.
