Curtis and I decided on a stealthy build. Not much in the way of flash. Kyle does some back country fishing and needs a rod that 1) will pack easily and 2) doesn't spook the natives with too much flash. So out came a blank I bought just for such a build. It is a 7 piece (2 tips), 8'6", Marsh Grass finish, 3 wt. Used dark chrome seat, guide and tip. Seat insert in from a piece of Walnut Burl I have been saving for just the right build and a stealth build is the right build ;-)
Thank you Kyle for your sacrifice.
