Very nice work. I’m always impressed by the quality of your finish. Looks like a fun rod.

Gentleman, thank you for the kind words. The blank is a light olive color so I used pale yellow Fuji thread for the wraps. The wraps took on a greenish/ yellow color I think it looks cool

What lines did you like best, Lanny for windy conditions on those Calif lakes on that rod? Thanks, Dave

Thanks, Lanny. I'm really enjoying the ********* 8'3" 5wt you built. Nice Build!!!! I've got torn hamstrings left side, had surgery, and recouperating waiting to fish it. It seems to cast a wide variety of 5 and 6 wt lines. All the Best, dave
