It's not a fly rod but my girlfriend asked for a purple rod to live line for Stripers. Dusted off the tools and went to work

Thanks John I will, purple is her favorite color. It's an 8' S-Glass blank so the butt is a little over 3/4" at the wrap, plenty of room to wrap on. this one felt like it was never gonna end...

Thanks JP, I made the mistake of showing her the progress now she asks me every day if it's done.

Luckily I found a piece of purple EVA in my box of grips and her purple reel came in last week. This setup will definately get noticed!
