"An intelligent man realizes that true perfection shall remain humanly impossible,
but strives for it irregardless!"
Returning Customer R.H. contacted me to build him a multi-pc. steelhead rod. He relayed his satisfaction surrounding his experiences of fighting steelhead on the 3wt. that I had built for him for the little natives and stockers and I stressed the importance of a stronger blank to improve the speed of landing fish (and to save the poor little 3wt. blank!). Together we chose an 11' 4/5wt. 4pc. blank that can handle up to 6wt. line. I converted it from there over to a full time centre-pin drift machine. The wraps were done more on the simplistic side of the spectrum, but a decorative butt wrap was included to make the rod uniquely special. I deviated slightly from the build parameters with the inclusion of the colored cork fighting butt and the dressing up of the butt weave to a slightly more involved level of thread work than was originally specified.
With this rod, the adventure ends, but another awaits my attention....
