Fly fishing is an art for life

Tom Morgan 7′ 4wt 2pcs

Some time ago I finished this Tom Morgan rod.
The hardware is polished aluminium,  the butt is softly brushed. The insert is made of Japanese Camphor burl and the cigar cork grip is made of flor grade and all of it is turned in house.
The Joe Arguello stripping guide and the Original Snake Brand guides are wrapped with YLI Green Grass colour silk.
The rod is shipped to the UK with a green Approach Genesis reel with a nice a 406 fly line.

The Pure 7’2″ 5wt with a matching reel

Recently finished The Pure 7’2” 5wt rod with my 5th Anniversary reel. Butt is made of the same bakelite as the reel what is made by the great reel maker Mitsuru Ishii from Japan. Top flor grip, reel seat and hardware inspired by an old Garcia Conolon fly rod. The lite Snake Brand guides and stripping guide of Joe Arguello are wrapped with silk of Au Ver a Soie. This set is heading out now to a very nice fisherman in the US.
