This is one of the true classics, made for a friend of mine. A vintage 10', 8wt blank from Larry Kenney's original G-series. This rod is perfect for steelhead, large brown trout, sea trout, pike, grilse and you name it... Crisp and light, powerful, responsive, and with that understated and utilitarian flavor only a west-coast manufactured blank can hold. We decided together to build it in the original tradition with a Ritz grip, and a short switch grip in the back. Recoil guides, Struble reel seat and tipping in silver and white. My friend has recently moved from trout only to becoming a salmon fisherman. I hope this rod will get the chance to catch some silver.
