It was my privilege and honor to build this rod for this customer, because it is not everyday someone achieves the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and this persons family wanted a rod as a gift to mark the occasion for this military fly angler. I went with colors that match his uniform dress blues so stuck with a black blank wrapped in blue with a bright yellow gold metallic trim. Also went with a carbon fiber seat that is actually a blue carbon fiber. Some dark & light mix cork give the grip a bit of a camo look and some blue accents tie it all together.
BTW Mike don't droll all over your screen at that seat lol
