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.
