Had every intention of fishing this in the big salty but, I might as well sand blast it if I do. This rod has made me several sales on custom builds and she gets treated as my prize filly. Nothing but the best. One of these days she will go visit some fresh water.
The Black Ash Burl inserts in the handles were quite a challenge. They are stabilized and hard as a rock, so I had to turn them to the shape I wanted and build the handles around them. Just about filled a swear jar on the handle construction alone.
Blank: Winston Spey, 12'6" (exact model slips my mind right now)
Seat Skeleton: Lemke Titanium
Seat Insert: Black Ash Burl
Handle: Mixed cork with Black Ash Burl inserts
Guides: Snake Brand and Fuji stripping guides
Wraps: Emerald Green with Pewter metallic and black
Until next time my friends,
