    I have not posted a rod in awhile and this one is a little unique, but only in the handle. The handle is a whitetail antler pedicle,brown burl cork with angled burnt cork and bubinga double ellipitical and moose antler winding check. the reel seat is an A7 with a chinese elm insert. The guides are pacbay chrome SF with a pacbay stripper. Wraps are Cobalt blue with red mettallic trims no CP. The rod was built as a prize in a charity fishing tournament.Oh yea the blank is a Forecast 9' 2 pc 4wt

    That will make a great prize.....I would love to win that rod. The grip looks incredible with your inlay work. I don't see bone on rods all to often and it gives it a good look. I have a few sheds that I'm thinking about playing around with. Job well done :thumb:

    I was going to do that to my 11' 4/5 switch for the lower handle. I was beaten to the punch. Looks nice!
