Olive Epic Fiberglass
 
Built this Epic for me. Needed a build to go with my J.Ryall reel I picked up. Love these reels and they have been out of business for several years.
Anyway the rod is a 5 wt., 8', 3 piece.
Seat: Lemke up-locking
Insert: Spalted Black Ash
Stripping Agate: Struble Banded Amber Agate
Guides and Tip tip: Sanke Band Universals
Wraps: Fish Hawk silk green with two turn black tipping.
Handle: Modified full wells

That's a beautiful build. The reel seat and hardware are stunning as is the line guide. Looks as though you went all out. I really like the contrast of the wraps against the blank. Very nicely done:thumbsup::thumbsup:
