Big Stick Prototypes for Sale
A little over two ago I sold my beloved 1974 Westfalia van, as being the parent of two that are under the age of three, it was not getting the use it deserved. I figured that I would use the money from the sale to pursue the idea of starting up my own fly rod company that specialized in Big Sticks for the rivers I love to fish. The idea was to make affordable big sticks that had lower line weights for the steelhead in Ontario.
The quest for the perfect rod continues but the prototypes are building up and I thought I would sell some off. The prototypes did not hit the targeted line weight and are 7/8/9/10 weights, I from what I could tell. They threw those lines with no problem at all. The action of the rods I would say is progressive. Lighter lines cast from the tip and heavier digs into the cork.
Please see the pictures of the handles and wraps below. They are the same on each rod. Just the lengths are different.

Rods are $150 USD and I will split the cost of shipping. I am also open to trades if anyone has anything interesting kicking around.
