Pre-Thanksgiving Bass

An email from Eric. That's one damn nice bass on the Morgan 3wt!

"Howdy Shane, I figured you'd appreciate the latest picture of the Morgan 3 weight. Caught this today while sneaking a little fishing time on the local ponds before the holidays. Hope you enjoy and I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving. Eric"

Lamigas Builds - #344 and #345

Old School? Well maybe. Here are photos of a pair of Lami's I just finished. I really like these rods, I enjoy the color, and the full flex slow action is something I really love. These two are very simple, the five weight with a red amboyna wood insert and agate stone to match, and the same idea with the 3wt an agate stone to match the maple burl wood insert, flor grade cork grips and blued hardware on both. I wrapped these in fine silk and varnished to a clear finish with no tipping. I look forward to working on more of these rods.

A couple LAMI'S

Here are two Lamiglas builds I am finishing up. A 7ft 3wt and an 8ft 5wt. Both will have clear wraps, and agate stones that match the color of the reel seats. Looking forward to finished rods next week.

Swift EPIC 686 - #340 Finished

Here is the first of a short list of EPIC 686 builds I will be finishing in the coming months. This one with a titanium reel seat, titanium stripping guides, flor grade cork and clear wraps. Keep it simple and bullet proof it was my client wanted along with oversized guides. I look forward to shipping this one out Monday.
