My Handmade Rod

October that is the beginning of the closed season, I remade my handmade pack rod using the reel seat of the cherry tree got from Daniele-san. The rod blank is ABY Special GF7544 (7'6" #4-5 4pc) that purchased in 1983. It is the graphite blank of un-sand finish that was a feature of Orvis of those days, but it is the drawback the brown paint of surface is weak. The closed length of this rod is 61cm. I am satisfied to the rod action, and have been using it as a spare rod. Since it was finished in good touch although it is a cheap rod blank, I want to use it regularly from now on too.
