The Build
8’6” #5 4 piece built on a CTS Golden-Honey spigot ferrule blank. The reel seat is a Snake Brand dark nickel coloured aluminium uplocking screw winch and the rings are dark nickel. The stripper guide is a TiCH Mildrum and the whippings are translucent brown with antique gold accents. The reel seat insert is figured Tasmanian Sassafras.
A great rod for the lakes this will cast a big Wooly Bugger or a midge pupa with equal ease. The spigot ferrule blank is a little more expensive but gives more strength to the rod.
