I recently finished the first Tom Morgan Rodsmiths six weight fiberglass rod. This is another very special "presentation grade" build I did for a returning customer. I am extremely happy with this rod and how it came out. It took quite some time to get it done, but I hope the long wait will soon be forgotten once this rod arrives to its new owner.
Tom offers two special six weight fiberglass rod designs. The first one is the so called "Streamer special" in 8'3" #6 in two piece that Tom actually designed when he was at Winston for the so called "Morgan twitch" streamer technique, a very unique and very effective way to fish a streamer actually. The second is the recent 8 1/2' #6 offered in four pieces. This is the smoothest six weight rod I've yet seen. Of course, the longer length and slightly more weight than a two or three piece rod will make you think twice. But once you feel the buttery smooth action of this rod it's hard to go back and cast anything else any time soon. I think this fine rod will make a beautiful big river trout rod and besides the Morgan streamer twitch fishing technique, my guess is that it will even make a good dry fly rod due to its very smooth action and sensitive tip. Thank you for looking and hope you'll enjoy the pictures!
