This is a rod I am finishing for Shane Gray of Graywolf Rods,as a personal rod. He has given me the go ahead to pick colors and make some bamboo ferrules. It is a swelled butt taper of 7'6" 4wt. Should be fun. I want to take lots of pics.
I am a rod builder of Bamboo and Fiberglass. I love these materials as a medium for creating fly rods. Their slower action suit my casting stroke and my idea of how a fly should be placed on the water.
