Fly Rod 004/005

All of the components were waiting at the house tonight when I arrived. After sorting the two blanks and assembling the components I was able to snap a picture of everything together.
Each rod is being built on a High Modulus Graphite blank which is 9ft and made up of four pieces. The weight selected is 5wt and are an ideal choice for small streams and rivers. With a very fast action it will deliver a fly at great distances with precision.
To keep the weight down, each rod will have a custom hand made carbon fiber grip made up of two part foam.

The stripper guides are lightweight with double footed snake guides finishing it out. The foregrip will have a four inch piece of rattlesnake skin as an inlay.
The guides will be wrapped in black and metallic copper for the trim, real seet will be a titanium chrome triangular seat with a black insert.

I will put up updates as it progresses.
