First rod in a few Years

11 October 2016 - 03:11 PM

First rod since my kids were born. Over all im happy with it.


SHX 5wt, lemke reelseat,  The grip is oversized as family member who its built for has very large hands.Tried a new thread coat which was a little heavier than id hoped . Wraps are chocolate brown and sunset orange with no color protectant (with authentic Wyoming pheasent feather   :gunsmilie:   ) .  the case is made of beetle kill pine and the rod sock is a first try (haha). Also the first insert I have turned myself .  Thanks a ton to Ron for helping me with all the ordering and giving me some help when I had botched a few things up. Took it up to Elk camp this year and the new owner gotta first run the rod on brookies at 10,000 feet.DSCN3357.jpg0728160831a.jpgDSCN3395.jpgDSCN3357.jpg
