Custom 8-Weight Fly Rod

posted in: gear, Rod Building | 0

This is a custom 9′ 8-weight carbon fiber (graphite) fly rod recently completed for a customer who plans to use it for Great Lakes salmon, steelhead, large trout and bass.  It sports a custom burl cork and composite cork grip, Snake Brand guides and Alps Triangular reel seat and stripping guides. ERN is 8.03/AA 68. I would rate this for 7/8 weight line, a fine tool for big streamers and bass bugs.
