I built this Spring Creek to have a sweet, medium action, and also gave it a somewhat unique configuration. Mortised all cork seat with a cap and ring, with a coin-edge knurl and rear cork check. Medium cigar grip. Lovely pot-belly ferrules with 100% of the oxidation intact. Brass and cork ferrule plugs. Rod shafts are wrapped green olive with brown olive intermediates. Fine tips and small hoop tip-tops round out this beauty. Very little use is evidenced, with only a tiny amount of hand discoloration on the grip and the faintest hint of "bag wear̢" and brassing on the agate stripping guide. This rod also comes with an unusual brass top and collar (photo below) that I made while experimenting with a new style and design. This rod would be a great addition to any collection or as your new go-to rod for that favorite small stream.
