10'4" Bamboo Trout-Spey

Here are some quick pctures that I took of a 104 bamboo trout-spey that I have completed for a forum member. As you can see, I made it with fiberglass ferrules. Its target grain range is from about 230 -270 grains.

Very nice. Could you describe your ferrules, I presume they are cut off old glass rods. They may be custom.

I cut the ferrules from some modern stock spinning rods. The fiberglass walls are heavier than on modern glass fly rods. The rod is hollow and weighs less than 7 oz.
