This is the last of my James Green Semi-Parabolic 7'4'', 4wt blanks, showing off an up/down locking reel seat in cross-cut Bocote and blued brass. Dark nickel snake guides in bronze and a blued  Mildrum ME stripping guide, all wrapped with orange Pearsall silk. I made this friend for my dear friend and highly talented rod maker Chris Barclay in St Louis. In return, Chris has promised me one of his new parabolic 4wt rods, the 75p. Sometimes it's extra great to be a rod maker.
