Another beautiful rod built for Alex in Massachussets, this time a 7'0 wt. The rod features a gorgeous agate stripper guide from Perfect-Europe that matches the rod beautifully. the wraps are transparent and finished with a narrow (3 turns of YLI 100 Silk) red trim band. This blank was unusual and even more beautiful than usual from Kabuto in that it had a red spiral line running all through the butt section from the manufacture process - the trim band matches it perfectly
A minimalist finish for this beautiful Epic 686 built for Mike (who is now the proud owner of three of our custom fly rods)! The rod has been finished with snake brand guides and clear wraps. A stunning agate stripping guide from Perfect-Europe provides just a touch of colour. Lemke reel seat hardware sits below the flor grad cord grip and the reel seat is finished with a gorgeous piece of Coolabah burl wood that I received from Australia. Tight lines Mike!
A rod inspired by a fishing trip I took with Anton to Islay last year which involved plenty of fishing and plenty of testing of the wonderful local whiskies. Anton asked me to build him a rod that evoked memories from that trip, and as a whisky aficionado that meant wood, whisky and copper. The rod is built on one of my LemonGlass 8'6 #6wt blanks and the wraps have been finished with whisky coloured thread with copper trim bands. A length of copper thread has been wound up
