Hey Everyone!

Signed up for this site a while back...just getting around to making my first post. Been fly fishing going on 20 years and building rods for around 8. A relative convert to glass compared to some of you I'm sure. A couple of my builds for your viewing pleasure.




Tight Lines

Mike

Welcome, Mikecarr56! Good-looking rods. I have a 7'8" 4wt "Sunset Red." Is yours one of those blanks?

The red 7'8" is an Aventik blank. I've built on the sunset red blanks a couple times and they are similar...might even be the same blank under a different name.

Live in Colorado, so lucky enough to fish our plethora of trout streams when life allows. Have a few impoundments near me as well that I'll frequent during the warmer months to try and catch bass like the one below.



She was a pleasure to fight on a Livingston Western Glass 8'6" 6wt
