I was lucky enough to find a vintage Lamiglas 7' 5wt blank, and just finished the build. I used yellow and Lt brown thread, with a black accent trim ring, to compliment the warm honey tone of the blank. I also recently picked up a Pflueger Medalion 1494 1/2 reel, which balances the rod very well. I think it'll be a perfect match for the spring run of 'bows in one of my favourite local rivers. This is where it will be going.
