Default Bfd 2012

I have been making a rod for a family derby the last few years, the Babin Family Derby or BFD. I always use a Utmost closeout blank for these rods as they want a inexpensive but good quality rod to give away as the prize and they do not care about a warranty. I also try to build a rod that they probably do not have. This year it was a 8'6" 7wt streamer rod. The grip is chinese elm off of the family's property with a moose antler winding check. Reel seat is a YFLY metal seat. Guides are Pacbay light wire in black with Fishawk varigated in wood w/CP.

BFD holds a different meaning (at least up until now) for me
Nice job on the rod. Let us know the lucky winner. How many family members participate?
Never heard of an Utmost blank.

Did Lefty turn you on to the blank:yike s:
