This is the first blank I have built on and I love that it is a natural graphite color. That makes it easy to come up with a color combination.
Blank: Proof Fly Fishing, 9', 4 piece, 5wt.
Seat: Lemke Dark Nickel plated up-locking
Insert: Black Ash Burl dyed to a Red Amboyna
Guides and winding check: Snake Brand Dark Nickel
Wraps: Fish Hawk Silk, Burnt Orange with two turn Metallic Gunsmoke trim
Wrapped my logo with the burnt orange so the logo would match the wraps. Didn't want any bling on this rod.
