Tom Morgan 8ft 5wt 4pc - #415

The final Morgan build finished from the latest batch I had been working on. I am starting the next batch of Morgans today and already have the lathe warmed up and ready to work.

This build is for a great client of mine that is obsessed with the" thumb print" grips, I always enjoy working on his orders. The reel seat is a nice burl maple, all components are blued and the rod is wrapped in black silk, trimmed in single turn gold thread. Another fabulous Morgan taper headed out to find some water.

Kabuto 7ft 3wt 3pc - #414 - SOLD

SOLD I have a recently finished white Kabuto 7'0" 3wt 3pc build available. I was excited to try to blend the colors of the stacked bamboo into this white blank. I wrapped the rod in antique gold, and tipped in single turn medium brown to try and replicate the golden tones of the bamboo and the brown lines between the rings. I think the rod came out very nice, and is now ready to brighten your day on the trout stream.

I used the standard rod tube hardware for this rod because the knurling on the cap mimics the knurling on the Garrison style reel seat hardware. The flor grade cigar grip is very comfortable as well.
