I would talk with Steeldrifter of Midwest Custom Fly Rods, and see if he can build you one. He definitely does quality work, and he should be able to build you a rod in the specs you need.

I agree with utyer. I only use and make my own cane rods, but they are all 3 and 4 piece travle rods, unless they are 6' to 6 1/2 or under, then I can get away with packing a two piece.
When I travle I usually take two of each weight so I have a backup if disaster strikes. There is nothing worse than being caugh hundreds of miles from cililization with a broken rod and no backup when the trout are on.
2} 2weights 6 to 6 1/2' feet 2 piece
2} 3weights 7 to 8' feet 3 piece
2} 4weights 8 to 9' feet 3 or 4 piece. All with extra tips. I also carry extra thread and crazy glue for on the spot repairs. As long as it holds up long enough to get through the trip, Im happy
Some times I'll carry a 5weight as an extra for others to use. That pretty much covers me for any trout waters or wind conditions.
