The Pure 7′ 3/4wt for Wooly Bugged

This rod is made for Mike of Wooly Bugged what finally ends up in a nice collaboration.

The rod is finished with a Ritz style grip, a bit swelled insert what is made of Flamed Mutenye wood and is matching good with the colour of the blank. Hardware of the insert is made of polished nickel silver, slide ring and brass butt are brushed.

Joe Arguello and Snake Brand guides are wrapped with Kimono silk.

Even the Approach Genesis reel is matching nicely with the rod.
