This is a 9' 4pc #7 rod made for the father of the boys who got the Rainshadow Trio posted earlier. It is built on a Pacific Bay blank. The fighting butt, reel seat insert and ends of the grip were turned from Argentinian Lignum. The castle of the Army Corps of Engineers is set into the rear of the fighting butt. The graphic shows outline maps of Iraq and Afghanistan where Matthew served as a civilian in the Corps of Engineers. He was awarded the Army Commendation Medal as well as the service medals for both conflicts.
