This eight foot five weight was made for a friend of a friend.  Hollow building keeps it light and responsive and adds a crisp feel to the action.  At the customer's request a special shaped grip was turned, dark walnut was used in the reel seat, and particular colors of thread were chosen for the main wraps and tipping.  The ferrules are made in my shop, but the reel seat was made by a friend as a close copy of the reel seats most commonly used by Lyle Dickerson.
