Operation Stillwater - first pics

After a lot of hard hard work and even more thinking an tinkering: The first few pics!

...a bit about the rod: This rod is a finished prototype for a rod-series specifically suited to fishing on reservoirs. When I started thinking about this rod the general idea was that I wanted to build a rod that is fun to fish. Not an overly stiff broomstick, but a rod that makes you wonder where that big smile on your face just came from!
A nice progressive bend, built with quality components and a classy look were the three key elements.

The rod is build on a blank from the boys and girls at CTS. In my opinion they build the best blanks in the world. I decided upon a length of nine and a half feet.

The extra 6 inches can make a lot of difference when you're fishing whether it's from the bank, the floattube or boat. The rod in the pics is a 6-weight but can also be build on a 5 or 7-weight blank if that's what your looking for. 

If you are interested in the rod or have a question, send me an e-mail (wavingastick@gmail.com) or send me a direct message @wavingastick on Twitter.
