    Here is 7'6" 4pc 5wt I built for fishing 3 of my favorite small rivers, the Couer D' Alene, St.Joe, and Rock Creek. All of these are very similar in that easily wadable but the wind can be a factor making lighter weight rods difficult to use. The reel seat is BUL5 with spalted birch burl insert, brown/black carbon fiber grip, Pac bay snake style stripper and black Pac Bay SF wire guides. The wraps are Gudebrod Gold with Fishawk green metallic.

    The decal combines all three in the name of the rod and the cuttie came from the Joe.
