The Build
7’6”’ #4 3 piece 'Latte' blank with a half wells grip and bright nickel uplocking reel seat and rings.
The stripper guide is a ’coffee’ coloured Agate and ‘Java’ silk tipped with black. The reel seat insert is figured Eucalyptus burl.
I call this my funky coffee rod - something a bit different with a wooden winding check to match the reel seat insert and flor grade corks interspersed with thin Birchbark discs.
The whippings are transparent Pearsall’s Gossamer ‘Java’ silk to complete the effect. The rod casts very well and will make an excellent stream rod.
