big cigar grip w/ bellinger up locking reelseat - maple insert. literary heads up - take note of the book on the table.
my tech team advised me to remove this pic as it doesn't "reflect" well on me or the craft. since I am a "warts and all" kinda guy it stays. why? because truth be told they all look like this at some point before they're tidied and polished up. rest assured the wraps are purty on this rod and as the owner mentions, it's a fun rod. I can't think of a better endorsement.
I'm fixing to re-activate this blog to feature rods as they come out of the shop.
the agua fria river is a dry river bed. it is very wide, though I have never seen it run bank to bank. the river when it bothers to rear its head and roar can be a force to be reckoned with. years ago the agua fria washed out the bridge on I-17 which is pretty incredible when you sit down and think about it.
