I have been moving towards shorter tapers lately. Here comes a complete remake of a vintage blank, probably an old Fisher. It's a 6', 4/5wt rod, perfect for trout fishing in small streams. This blank was traded in, partly finished and with a not so nice, complete dip-varnished finish. It tools some time to get rid of the old varnish. After having stripped it down, I decided to finish the blank in brown tones, with an all cork grip/seat and blued brass skeleton with a rubber cap. The action is medium fast, with a good power reserve. This rod is for sale. Price $250 + $30 int. shipping.
