Finally a new post of me.
Finished some time ago this great new model blank of Tomo.
Semi ventilated super top flor cork. With aluminium hardware and matching PEI butt with the reel spool. Wrapped the Snake Brand guides and perfect stripping guides with Kimono silk. In the mean time the rod caught a lot of great brook trout in the US.

Hope you like it.

Nico

Like the handle design and especially that high grade cork. Guides wraps are superb. Bet it will fish as good as it looks!

Hi MT trout,

The Sakura 3wt is smooth parabolic rod and is perfect for delicate presentation of the fly. Tomo's blank are unique in the way they all cast. And specially if you like soft rods.

Very nice build Nico. Is there a difference in the Sakura and Yomogi blanks apart from the colour?
