The story...


C.C. contacted I.R.C. for a steelhead rod that could be packed down into a small space and handle the big skams he encounters on his steelhead excursions.  We settled on a conversion because length, action, feel, and cost were the ultimate factors.  This being his first custom rod, I'm hoping that he'll become a repeat client when the packaged rod arrives at his doorstep.  Sometimes seeing is believing.  If that isn't enough, I know once he hooks his first steelhead on this rod...he'll be back!

I was blessed with another extremely patient client.  And with the additional time allotted, I focused on delivering a refined finished product that would leave him speechless. 




With this rod, the adventure ends, but another awaits my attention....
