Thanks! To me, that is the beauty of a custom rod: done the way you want it.

Here's my 7"9" F&F. I've caught many very nice fish using this big Cottonwood for cover, with this rod.

Just got some new boo, unknown taper but casts a 4wt line like a dream. This one will be fun to fish this spring, I just need to get myself to go after something other than Striper. I do need t get a smaller reel for the rod but the L W Holmes will work for now.

I don't have any pics of it yet but I just got around to adjusting the guide spacing on my little 4'4" Payne/Bogart Banty, naturally I had to test cast it. All I can say is I LOVE split cane rods!!!!

Jenkins built 7' 6" 2 piece 4wt Lamiglas blank. Steve Jenkins is one of the finest people I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with!
I hope it is OK to post this. Steve has his beautiful brown glass PLG rods $50 dollars off if you order before Christmas. That's $250 for one of his glass rods. I had to order one to go with my new Abel TR2, the rods have black anodized hardware . http://www.jenkinsflyrods.com
