12 Foot 4/5

Recommended Posts

There are very few light trout two hand rods that are 12 feet and a 4/5 weight.  In fact there is only one I know of.  The FlySpoke Presentation Series 1205-4  Medium Fast Action.  The perfect stick for many Maine locations on the swing.  The "Big D" would also be covered well.1205-4-5.jpg1205-4-1.jpg1205-4-2.jpg1205-4-3.jpg1205-4-4.jpg

Nice stick!

 

(BTW, Temple Fork makes a 12.5 foot 4/5 weight,  ARE can set you up with a finished rod or blank at 12 foot 3/4 and 12 foot 5/6, and Beulah has a 12' 4" 5 weight, none as nicely finished as yours, however.  More new trout weight two handers coming into the marketplace every year. )

Aldo, my customer wanted exactly a 12 foot stick.  I do have availability to many companies blanks including Beulah, Sage, Orvis, T&T, Winston, TFO and a number of others.  I have built a number of the ultra high modulus from ARE.  They are nice if only each section was not sparkle coated and shinny black with writing that is embedded into the paint at the ends.  The butt section also has a large meaningless logo ..  They are not that special to over weigh the beauty of the matte finish less painted blanks I have for this build.   Thanks for your kind words.

Alan, let me know what your time schedule is for the show.

The attention to detail,the finish and most of all how well the rod casts exceeded my expectations! 

Thank you!
