First cast on a very powerful 8ft 5wgt.
3 piece with bamboo ferrules. Green silk red tips, still needs a couple of coats on the mid and tip section. But wow it has some punch.
hopefully it will get some use this season as its taken aged to finish.........

A few minor issues, really wish I had gone with a darker agate :( Oh well

Cheers

Matt

Bloody beautiful as always Matt. Don't worry mate, every time I finish a rod, there is always one little part that I wised id done better, but as my wife points out, I'm the only one that spots the error.
