The story...

 

I was contacted by native Kentuckian J.G. with an interest in having a specialized fishing rod built that would be used exclusively on a favored lake in search of monster bass.  This build was a "months long" endeavor with plenty of communication and a TON of patience exhibited by the client.  I believe he will agree (once he receives the mail package) that the wait was well worth it...I can't wait for the fish catching photos!

Build Review:

 

This was my first time working with the KR and K micro guides by Fuji.  The running guides were extremely small and initially I was concerned that I couldn't continue the wrap theme with such a short area to work with.  I was able to complete the look and carry the decorative wraps through the tip in spite of the strain on my eyes!

 

 

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