Well here’s one that I just finished and shipped just in time for Christmas! This is a rod that is not in my traditional colors but if I do red this is what I prefer. This color is a nice classic looking red tipped in black, the cane is a nice honey color and the burl rosewood spacer compliments the rod nicely. As is becoming more and more common the customer wanted me to make as many of the components as I could and I did everything but the tip tops! Well as they say a picture is worth a thousand words so here it is!
Looks just like mine! Of course I love it!
I’m glad, in a way, that I’m too old to need this rod, because it would be painful to want it. It appears as near to complete in its every satisfaction as possible. The “compleat angler’s” rod.
It is the stuff of fantasy and fancy.
Dear Joe, indeed that is a classy looking gem, in which all parts nicely compliment each other — the wraps, the wooden inserts, the Agate Guide — wish you some calm days and a Merry Christmas, Jürgen
