Dirk Krüger and the Two Handed Fly Rod for Dad

March 02, 2015 1 min read

Hello Jeanie, hello Carl,
Attached are some pics of the 11'6" build. The wraps will get a final sanding and Coating this week. The rod has to be finished by next Saturday when my Dad is going to celebrate his 80. birthday. So I am in a hurry!!
Once given it to him I do not know when I will get another chance to take photos of it. So here is the rod nearly finished. Wrapped with Pearsalls dark brown and dark olive to match a golden Hardy Sovereign (or any other classic "golden" reel like Fin Nor, Seamaster, etc.)

(Dirk Krüger, custom fly rod maker, Germany)

What a present.

    Giving the Epic 590 a workout on Zorro Spring Creek in the Chilean Andes last January. I was consistently amazed at the way that rod performed in a variety of circumstances. I mentioned utility in my Instagram post and I meant it. The 590 Fly Rod basically ticks all the boxes for me as a trout rod. You guys ruined me.
