This is the blonde version of the Graywolf Trout Taper. Similar specs and appointments as the flamed rod, but with a blued NS seat from the amazing hands of Chet Croco on Bellinger Inc. This rod has golden silk wraps, and is just a bit neater in performance. A new feature on these rods is the cork insert dipped in spar varnish. I love cork, and this makes it even more beautiful. This is the rod I will send to Shane. I hope it makes it to Michigan before Christmas.
