An 8'6 6wt LemonGlass built to match an Abel Jurassic Tail

it is hard to deny that Abel make some of the most beautiful reels and this Jurassic Tail Super 6N is not exception to that.

 

 

The brief, to build a 6wt fly rod that would do it justice and match it.  Our 8'6 LemonGlass is an amazingly versatile blank and an excellent tool to have in the collection.  I would say that if I wanted a full spectrum of rods I'd probably take a 7' 3wt LemonGlass, 8'6 6wt LemonGlass and the 10wt Car'Poon to be be ready for pretty much anything.  This custom built fiberglass rod features snake brand guides, a beautiful agate stripping guide from Ernest at Perfect Agate.  The reel seat hardware is from Lemke and the cork grip is of course, custom created and turned at Gouldfish as is the olivewood reel seat insert.
