Built this rod for a customer who moved to northern Idaho a few years back having been raised in Alaska neer Ft. Greely where his Dad worked on base as a civilian. The Blank is a PacBay 11' Quickline 6wt switch,handle is a Bubinga/cf/burl cork combo with a Alps triangular reelseat,blue al dimpled winding check and one of the new Kigan XLA hookeepers. Guides are pacbay minima's with matching ring 7 tip. The butt cap was the insignia for Fort Greeley. Guide wraps are the Alaskan flag colors.
And lastly my wife has started doing metal stamp jewelry which has added a nice touch to our rod socks
