I've posted a few in-process photos of this rod, but here's the finished product. 8' 5wt 2pc build on a blank by James Green in his Montana Trout series. Nice casting rod.

James gave me a few tips to work on getting a nice level finish using varnish. I still need more practice, but I think this turned out pretty good. Not completely level, but it'll fish.

Bethlehem Olive wood reel seat, pac bay guides, wrapped with Mocha, Brown, and Old Gold.

Very nice! I would like to hear about James Green's varnish tips. I had no idea he had a Montana Trout series. How is the action, faster than his previous offerings I suppose?
