Not a fan of brown at all but for some reason, this rod is a beauty....very nice. Is this a specialty euro nymph build?

Pretty much mainly a Euro style rod due to the long length as well as moderate action. They also make pretty good two handed switch style rods as well. Lot of rod to single hand cast though, it can be done, but lot of rod lol

Excellent work, as usual.  Too much brown for my taste, but I do like the grip.
