Now when I get that bamboo 3wt from you, I'll never need another rod.
:rofl::rofl: Ya right!!!! :rofl::rofl:
A break in the rain today was brightened by a brief respite of sunshine, only to be made brighter by the postman handing me this........
Mark, that is soooo Sweet! Fred does awesome work and that lemon drop blank is awesome!
Thanks for posting up a photo.
THAT is a helluva creek rod. You have excellent taste.
Mark, whatchagonnadowiththat? You don't fish do you? She is a beauty for sure.
Beautiful Rod, I just traded away another one of my creek rods today...
No, no fishing, so I figured I just make a nice display featuring the rod poised with a pair of Dormisch-Absi reels and Marryat Baby.:rofl:
Thanks all for the comments. It sure is a "looker".
Waiting for a Kineya reel to mate it with.
It'll be one of the rods headin' to Idaho in Sept.

That is a beauty! 7'7"3/4 may be my favorite length whether glass/plastic/boo. Great looking rod. Congrats!
Hey, Mark, what to go fishing sometime?
Thanks to everyone for the kind words (and jibes).
Will, hopefully. post pics of it when I get a reel fitting it's magnificence.
My brother got Cabelas fiberglass rod in the 7 1/2 foot 5/6 but casting a Rio 4wt grand on it. For the money I believe it is the best one. He can cast just about all the line out. You did say short so they make it in a 5 and I think a 6 foot rod. I like the 7 1/2 so much I will be get one also. Good luck!
I just bought a 6 1/2 foot Eagle Claw parabolic fiberglass rod. It is a 3-4 weight and it the original old yellow color, with a wood reel seat. I bought it at the Sportsman Warehouse (or whatever they call it now) and it was $14.99!!!!! I bought it because it reminded me of my old Eagle Claw spinning rod I had when I was a kid. I threw a cheap orvis clearwater reel on it and it casts like a dream. Cannot wait to go fish some small streams with it. I will use it when I am not fishing my 3 weight Sage.
