I built this smaller glass rod for some of my local trout waters. Trying to go for a classic look for this build so I went with a orange twist thread with a single turn silver tip to accent the chrome snake guides. For the reel seat I got a hold of Ron from South west custom rods and went with nickle Down locking Lemke hardware. I turned a chunk of Mango for the insert to match the browns in the build SUMMER TIME TROUT!!!!!!!!
