Epic Amber 686

Here is Swift's new Amber color in the also relatively new four piece 686 design. I finished this rod for a cool guy in Finland. A beautiful looking six weight for sure and even better performing. Mauri fishes for big trout and salmon in the Kola Peninsula, Russia and of course, Finland. This wicked Amber 686 will have some serious work to do in the next coming season.

The rod was fitted in my presentation grade in a special color scheme similar to a cane rod. The dark accents of the blued Mildrum stripping guide, snake guides, reel seat and blued winding check really complement this beautiful golden-yellow blank. Everything flowed together nicely as I felt very inspired on this build.

It's going to be a long busy winter and please check back from time to time for more of these beauties. Thanks for looking!
