Latest build

#1
Hello people
This is the latest rod that I put together for someone that is going to backpack the High Sierra's, hence the label. No marbling on this rod just a wood grip with a matching insert. For the build I started with Batson's XF764-4 = RX8 7'6 4wt with Alps TiCh snake with matching stripper and reel seat hardware. For the thread I used Pro wrap Chesnut no CP and Metallic gunsmoke accents. The grip and reel seat I turned out of Mango wood. I am sad to see not that many people posting pictures of builds lately so I figured I would post one.

Are those accents wrapped on top of thread wraps? Very nice work, especially the subtle color scheme.

The thread I used for the accents is pro wrap's metallic. Their metallic stands up a little taller than their regular size "A" nylon thread so it gives it a lifted look when put next to a size A
