A classic rod

This is a great 3wt. rod for trout.  Very simple and clean, classic build. The classic cigar cork handle has a fine feel to it and is a perfect match with for classy reel seat from Joel Lemke. This is a new addition in my line of rods and they will set a new standard in my builds. These are truly spectacular nickle silver and black nickle seats with gorgeous wood inserts, very light weight to balance the highly advanced graphite blanks of today.
This light rod makes a great soft presentation trout fishing tool, with medium-fast action and progressive feel, great for close and medium range and with enough power for longer casts when needed. Also, this lenght and weight is a must in the trout fisherman's arsenal. And to make it even more special, a very elegant leather tube was a must to complete the package.
Thankx for looking!A
