Harada, Katsumi - Ijuin Yomogi Fiberglass Rod 7' 3wt
For sale here is a spectacular build by Katsumi Harada, made with blanks crafted by Kazutomo Ijuin (Ijuin Rods). 7' for a 3 weight line. Full flexing and parabolic action, designed for small stream fishing and confined spaces where touch is more important than brawn. This rod is more on the slow side compared to the 7'6" rod offered separately here at Vintage Fly Tackle. New unused condition with plastic on the grip. The top guide is a Fuji titan frame with gold cermet ring and the other guides are titanium nitride rings. The fly line goes through the guides very smoothly. The reel seat is made of zelkova, Japanese name is "Keyaki", which is a very famous and valuable wood in Japan and is typically used to build shrines and temples!
