Spey rod for trout, anyone here do it?

19 March 2017 - 08:59 PM

Thinking about building myself and my fishing buddy a couple of 5/6wt 12ft spey rods for trout this spring. There's a few spots on the Au Sable where I think a spey would be just the ticket. Anyone else here do smaller 5/6wt spey rods for trout? If so I'd like to pick your brain on a few things about it.

Custom SHX build

Custom SHX rod just completed today with gunmetal finish seat, charcoal wraps, metallic silver trim, natural cork grip with just a tad of brown burl and rubberized at the ends, and a couple of red wraps at 15" & 20" for quick fish measurements.

"Other" kind of rod

Just off the bench is this 11'3" MHX Steelhead & Salmon bait casting rod complete with Roberts style spiral wrap arrangement for the guides which smoothly transfer the line from the top of the rod to the bottom of the rod. Complete with St Croix grips, Fuji guides and Kegan hook keeper.


Upcoming Spring sale on glass rods

08 March 2017 - 08:26 PM

I will be getting in a small supply of some pure white fiberglass blanks in the next couple weeks. Probably 7ft 3wt, 7'6" 4wt and 8ft 5wt. Going to be building them up and offering them here first and going to try my best to keep these first three at or as close to $100 each as I possibly can.


So just letting this be known ahead of time.
