This ultimate and incredibly beautiful trout fly rod was hand built by a remarkable artist and Club member into a striking piece of functional angling art. The 8 foot 4wt 4 piece rod is made using the Winston Blll X blank and a RL Reel Seat. The Boron III X provides the benefits offered by third generation boron/graphite composites. The RL wood reel seat by Ray Lee is an exceptional dyed maple burl wood reel seat and the seat skeleton was machined from nickel silver bar stock. Titanium coated guides are used and are impervious to corrosion. Real jungle cock feather inlays on butt section and most guide wraps are artfully done. Rod comes with a sock and case.
Fishing artist Joe Nicklo has hand burned magnificent images of a stonefly and mayfly nymphs and a scud into the high quality cork grip. All the quality and features further enhances this one of a kind special edition to make it unique. This is unquestionably a dream rod for any angler and is destined for heirloom status.
