Order Progress

This rod was intended for a customer, but last minute sanding revealed some cane discoloration due to water marks in the butt section.  Though water marks are only a cosmetic problem, I could not sell this as a top-end rod.  Someone will get a bargain on this rod because of the water marks.  It's wrapped Chinese red, tipped mint green and uses a Mildrum style stripping guide rather than an agate.  The reel seat is a pocketed cap and ring made by a friend of mine with a light colored ash burl filler.

Some of the
cosmetic problems with watermarks are pictured below.
