Happy New Year everyone! Hope we'll all have a better year than the one that just passed. I don't pride myself with numbers of rods built, but I do take pride in the quality of the builds.
I built this beautiful Steffen rod for a good friend of mine. The 7'3" 2/3wt. is one hell of light trout rod that every creek guy should own. I preffered the 2pc. version in the past that sadly Mark is no longer making. I wish I would have kept it. Mark is 65 years old and he and his brother Tim will be focusing on just a few of their most popular models in the future.
Rod was appointed in dark hardware, dark bronze signature Lemke seat with a gorgeous maple wood insert. Wood received another coat of epoxy for that super lustrous finish. Dark nickel 8mm Struble agate with classic titanium snake guides and classic simple chestnut silk wraps.
The special leather case was crafted to accommodate two rods. A beautiful rod that will make my friend happy for seasons to come. Thanks for looking!
