The Natural 6'6" 3wt - Wrapped



The smallest of the Natural tapers the 6'6" 3wt 3pc is now wrapped. I think you will see a nice transformation with this natural silk. I took these photos yesterday before adding dye to the silk and applying the first coat of finish. Should be a very interesting build when complete.

CTS Bright Orange 868-4 - #333



Bright, and I mean bright orange as a special request from one of my clients. S2 fiberglass, lots of power. This build started with two requests a bright orange blank and titanium hardware, the reel seat machined by Joel Lemke from titanium and is indestructible and heavy duty with dual locking rings, all the guides including the tip top are REC Recoil and are a change from my normal, favorite and stock Snake Brand. The rod was wrapped in antique gold, tipped light orange with a few single bands of titanium colored silk. The full wells grip and fighting butt are made from flor grade cork and one rubberized ring at the end of the fighting butt. I was able to get a few photos in the rain today, and now this rod is ready to go!
