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.)

What a present.

The use of Graphene nano resin affords clear performance advantages. 5% Lighter, tougher and more responsive.
Our SnakeBelly™ Satin finish is scratch and chip resistant making for an extremely tough and durable fly rod that is less prone to stress fractures caused by collisions with weighted flies.
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.
