switch hitter
 
This is the third of these rods I have built but this one is a personal rod.
Blank is a 11' 6wt 4pc PacBay, with a Alps triangular reel seat and PacBay minnima guides. Thread is gudebrod black and Pro thread black silver twist. The hookeeper is a Kigan XLA in black. Handle is Chinese Elm/guitar pickguard white/black/white and carbon fiber combination in modified full wells configurations.

Innovative hook keeper, like the spiral wraps too. Seriously neat rod. Would a close-up of the detail on the base of the bottom grip be too much to ask?

Beautiful work, congrats! Love what you did with the wood/carbon fiber and the spiral wraps.
