Williams Creek is a personal favorite of mine. That rod should be beautiful for that once the flows come down and the water clears.Yes on the agate. I had asked Paul for a Colorado themed rod, hence the flag colors at the 18" mark and the green wraps. The agate is white.
I gave Paul free reign with my idea as I do not like to limit an artist. I have known Paul for around 20 years and knew he would come through.
The agate came from Wolf Creek pass in our backyard. Paul wanted to honor my CO theme and used an agate he found up there. Attention to detail and artistry.
Ross Colorado LT click and pawl. Sock sewn in town of locally grown hemp.
Was there when we shaped the grip. Even did some shaping. Great experience.
Have only cast in the yard as I just got it this evening. Tomorrow on Williams Creek. Performed as expected tonight.
