Fly Tying

8'6" Six weight

Recommended Posts

Just finished this rod a couple weeks ago. The blank is a Swift Epic 686. Snake brand guides/tip top and reel seat with spalted maple insert. Clear wraps on the guides with red trim and red agate stripper to match the trim. I turned the grip and fighting butt myself, capping the butt in red EVA foam to match the trim. I did the grip a little chubbier than usual. I stripped streamers with it all day last Tuesday and it was real comfortable in my hand.





Here' the first decent fish on the rod

Nice looking rod, Mike. The colors look like they match the StL Cardinals Saturday uniforms. I like it.
