I made this rod as a gift for a good friend of mine, Maybe I should say that we made it together. His job was to make all the hardware.. ferrules, reelseat, tube. I did the rest.... ;)


He lives just a few meters from the river Vipava in western Slovenia, so we decided to give a name to the rod after "his" river.. The rod is 7'6''#5/6 3/1, made with the modified Garrison 209E taper.

Excellent rod!  I like the classis look of the reel, too.  Thanks for sharing.
