    The following is the original catalog description from The Wild Salmon Center,

    - "In honor of the late Roderick Haig-Brown, patron saint of salmon and steelhead conservation, the Wild Salmon Center, with support from the Haig-Brown family, announces a limited edition Haig-Brown Greased Liner commemorative rod and reel - an exquisite combination of tackle the master himself took so much pleasure using. It's the perfect outfit for swimming greased-line wet flies and somber waking dries in clear summer flows for steelhead and Atlantic salmon. 

    Only 25 [this number became 27] commemorative combinations will be built - wonderful collector's items to display proudly. Each handmade rod and reel, with custom matching cases, comes specially numbered and engraved. 

    The Rod: Light, powerful and beautiful, the 9-foot 5-1/8-ounce, six strip bamboo fly rod handles a 7-8 line and comes with two tips. Built with care by R.L. Winston's master rodmaker and avid steelheader, Glenn Brackett of Montana. 

    Leather Cases: Individually made with polished brass fittings by artisan Arne Mason of Oregon. 

    $4,500 per limited edition combination of rod, reel, and matching leather cases. Numbers available on first come, first serve basis."
