    This was an Anglers Roost 5/6 14ft more like a 6/7 but surprisingly is a pretty nice Spey. Defiantly something the major manufactures don’t have. I also have some leather crafters that do some pretty cool work. What you think?

    That is a hell of a fine looking stick. What's the action like (classic/modern)?

    Great looking build
    I found with his blanks that his gr/line rating is a little light. Have you had a chance to fish it yet also I might add Amazing looking leather

    I had one of the first ones. It was every bit a 7 or 7/8, fast in action. Feel: it reminded me of what a ski instructor buddy said to me about breast implants: they look beautiful, until you touch them and find that they feel like concrete.

    I tried it with a couple different lines and the SA 520 Skagit worked well. The 5 should not be in its caliber. 6/7 I think for sure. Still real fun and worth the money in my opinion.
