This rod was made for my fishing buddy Anders. In return, he made me a nice little knife. I love swapping crafted goods. The blank is a sweet little Asian 6'6'', 3wt blank. Nothing fancy, but it performs very well. Nice tea colored finish, and with spigot ferrules. Some of these Chinese tapers are actually value for the money, and for fishing short distances in rough terrain, this actual blank is surprisingly often my first choice. Appointed with a small aluminium skeleton turned in house, and an all cork grip. Sweet little broke rod. Maybe my favorite kind of fishing of them all...
