Light and long..2 wt. "french nymph" rod

Hi everyone!
Here is a truly one of a kind light nymphing rod that I've been waiting to build for some time. This rod will make a perfect fishing tool for those fast flowing trout streams, whether for fishing nymphs or dry flies, short czeck nymphing or the french style with long ultrathin leaders for slow cristal clear streches of water and spooky fish. This ultralight rod will handle them all, whenever finesse, line control and presentation are the magic words. I know some frech guys will go nuts after this boy..Thank you all for stopping by!!
