June has been a busy month. It's trout season everywhere, and I have had many out-going rods on the rack lately. This one was made to match the latest version of The Can in grey anodization. The blank is a 7'5'', 4wt Alchemy Dharma, a smooth parabolic taper that goes well with a 5wt line. The rod is appointed with grey silk wraps and chrome hardware. The reel seat skeleton is turned from aluminum, with a butt cap in translucent rubber. I made this rod for myself, so I guess this is the style I prefer the most. Light weight and plain.
