    About 2 months ago I was asked to build a donation rod to be auctioned off at the 2010 Fereration of Fly Fishers Conclave at Yellowstone on August 27th. This is the rod I built for the auction. It's a 9' 6wt SAGE Z-Axis.

    Beautiful reel seat. Too bad Sage doesn't offer them that nice from the factory.
