An Early Birthday Present For My Wife


Recommended Posts

So a few year's ago I had a custom rod built for my 40th. Since then, it's become Deb's favorite rod for smaller rivers like the Oldman and I haven't been able to use it... So for her birthday this year (I won't disclose what number birthday, but I'm sure you can deduce that for yourselves) I decided to get the same rod built for her (although they no longer make that paticular blank in a 5 piece, it's only available in a 6). The blank is a Dancraft 8' 3 wt FLT. I'm quite please with the result, and I'm sure she will be as well!! She'll be receiving it this weekend even though her birthday isn't until October ;)... Oh and of course I had to get a new one built for myself at the same time (she'll definitely shake her head at that! Mine is a 9' 4 wt 6 piece)! LoL


Thanks so much Colin (CDone), AWESOME builds!




P.S. This particular colour was chosen because it matches the detail on both her wading boots and rain shell!! :P
