Took a break of posting rods here due intense workshop time... so here is one of the latest rods which left my lab...

Blank is a 7,6ft 4wt 3pc of Bens early tapers... deep flex, yet enough power to do some precise mid range casts... i simply love it...

Finished it with clear silk and brown/bluish tipping. Modified the standard hardware a bit on the lathe and sponsored a shop turned NS Winding check as well as a clear slightly blue banded agatine.

Its a clean but classy concept as requested by its new owner.

Complemented the rod with a matching sock and whip finisher.

Hope you guys stayed safe and had already some blasting days on the water!

Thanks for looking!

Marc

You are a true craftsman. Interesting hook keeper. Did you make that too? And, I'm jealous of your penmanship.
