Not your everyday build!!

Recommended Posts

Built this for an individual who then changed his mind. Was a fun build.....mother of pearl reel seat and some interesting guide wraps.

Looks nice.

What's the blank?

Did you make the reel seat, or buy it?

Blank is an un-branded IM6  9' 5wt three piece. Reel seat was purchased. Line guide wraps are two shades of light purple. Overall effect is really quite eye pleasing. Second one I built like this....real sweet casting rod.

Thanks Rip. It almost glows in dark.

I donated the pink rod along with another custom build to my local Project Healing Waters group. They ran two silent auctions at the Wasatch Fly Expo this past weekend. Brought in $235 and $175 respectively. Felt good to help out my PHWFF friends.
