Here is a nice trout taper from Mark Steffen in pack rod configuration. It's an 8', 4/5wt appointed with my own reel seat, Snake Brand Original guides, Mildrum stripping guide and Gossamer silk in claret. The reel seat is turned by an unknown piece of wood that was given to me by a friend all finished with Tru-Oil. Skeleton in blued brass and a matching rubber butt plate. The reel seat has a smooth but articulated transition to 6'' cigar grip, turned by flor grade cork from Portugal. This rod was made on customers order.
