Hanak Competition 396

Here's a unique project on an exclusive blank I received from Frantisek Hanak in Czech Republic. This was a special occasion as they don't sell blanks to the general public. 

It's been a while since I last built a rod with single foot guides but folks say they are better for short line euro nymphing techniques. I can't argue with anyone but I'm a snake guides guy in general. 

This rod has a very nice color scheme in chestnut wraps over light brown blank, local walnut wood insert and beautiful wooden check turned in shop transitioning from cork to blank. A gorgeous leather case was crafted to fit in this color scheme. 

This is a a truly great light stick for nymphing and some big river dry fly action. Heirloom quality grade.

Thanks for looking!
