just finished that very special rod.
Dedicated to the very beautiful rainbow trout...think there is no need to explain that if you look to the pics.
That Haldin 68 blank is a very special blank, that is not really available at the moment. But really brilliant to cast for streamers and heavier flies.
Here are the facts of the rod:
Blank: Haldin 68 raw white (8‘ #6)
Grip: custom burnt and painted rainbowtrout
Reel seat: Struble / Acrylic insert
Guides: perfect agate plus snakebrand (9+1)
Wraps: Kimono silk
Hope you like that colorful rod!
