Fresh out of the drying cabinet today- This one is a 7'6" 1wt 4pc that a customer requested to be done like a 1wt I did a couple months ago for Dennis in a brown trout theme, but he wanted it to "pop" because he liked flash. So This is what I came up with for him. Wraps are bright copper/gold/red metallic then a mix of various burl corks for the grip and a dark wood seat.
