A small but a great rod of Ids Schukken 5’ 3wt splitcane 2 pcs

This is a short and light splitcane rod with a quick recovery and is also surpricently powerful. The splitcane blank is made by the great rod builder Ids Schukken.

The ritz grip is made of flor grade cork. Reel seat is of Olive wood, the skeleton and hex winding check are made of blued brass and all turned in house.

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.
