Thread: donation rod

  1. Default donation rod

    I have not posted a rod in quite awhile, but I built this rod for a benefit auction for an ex student with a rare bone cancer. Ashley is a 24 year old young woman who has had a rough go of it. She has had a total knee replacement,chemo,and radiation. For now she is in remission but... Anyway on to the rod. Blank is a Lamiglass 9' 4pc 6wt,reel seat is a Batson 101 with a birch and bubinga ellipticall. Grip is carbon fiber ends,flor cork,bubinga accents and light/dark burl center. guides are minima 4's. Wraps are Fishawk burgundy varigated with pac bay gunsmoke metallic.

    Thanks for posting. Did you turn down the different materials in the grip separately or glue it up and shape them together?

    That is crazy good work, yourself and a few other forum members blow me away with your artistic ability.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Wow, what a rod. Hoping to build my first here shortly, but I can only hope it is half that nice. Great work.
