A Hollow built 7' 6" five weight built for Pat in Dallas.  Hollow building not only
removes weight, it adds to the crisp feel of the rod.  The wraps are medium-brown
Gudebrod silk, tipped darker brown.  The cherry burl reel seat filler looks nice with
the nickel silver hardware I make and use on all my rods under six weights. 

Five small wraps identify this rod as intended for a five weight line.

Hollow building reduced the weight of this rod by about ten percent.

Top quality cork is not easy to find these days, but adds to the look and feel of the rod.

All my rods feature bronze plated Snake Brand snake guides.  Mike and Susan make
the best guides on the market.  They are hard chrome plated first, then bronze-chrome
plated for long life.

I love the look of the Snake Brand agate stripping guides.

The feet on each stripping guide are perfectly ground when they arrive at my shop.  
In these macro shots, the camera show that I need to blow the dust away before taking shots this close!
