One the most popular of the Dan Craft blanks, the six piece FTL 8036, may be the perfect rod for the traveling small stream trout fisherman. All the goodies a great blank should be fitted with are right here. Uplocking nickel silver reel seat, flor grade cork grip, subtle thread colours and a remarcable leather tube handracrafted right here in Romania. I wanted to match everything together and the result is a very light and beautiful #3 trout rod. Here it is and thankx for looking!
