    Looks great. I just ordered up a reel seat and grip for a 1 wt. build.

    What reel are you planning using with it?

    I bought one of the new Orvis Battenkill click-pawl reels. Size 1 I think (it's the smallest one). Balances nicely.

    That's what I was going for. Normally I do more modern themes, but I wanted to try something more traditional. This was my first rod using single foot guides and a cap and slide reel seat. I have only done snakes and uplocking before. Also my first rod with a cigar grip, which I'm really liking.

    Treat that reel seat good. $10 less than the rod. Looks like a fun time on the skinny waters.

    You'd be real surprised at how hard it is to find a cap and slide reel seat under 40 that doesn't look ugly as hell.
