Nice ... but I'm not too sure about the grip.  I don't think I like the checker board ... hmmmm.

Well maybe you don't care for it Mike...... But I do think there just may be a 10' 3wt rod here, that has a ton of blue on it, and I really dunno who the owner of that might be? Maybe some Flordianian guy that is in Michigan next month? could be.Dunno, we'll see.happy.png

Beautiful rod. A 10 foot 3 weight rod high sticking a nymph is just about the best way to catch trout consistently here in the Smokies.
