One for me. After a year of being far too busy on others account I finally got to make this. It's been in the planning stage too long. Olive wood insert, scarlet and clear wraps, matched tips. Seven feet hollow three piece for a #4 line. Maybe next season I might have time to fish it as well.








Thanks for looking.

Thanks guys.
R, it's more or less a Payne 196.
I think olive is a wonderful colour on a blond rod.

Hey,

a very nice looking rod. Like the clear wraps an the olive reelseat.

I'm also going to build a hollowed rod again. A three pice 8ft, 4wt, with baboo-ferrule.
After an long break, I'm glad to start building again.

Best regards, Michael
