Just completed this 13'6" MKS rod in a 7/8 wt. Used Tiger Maple and Rosewood for the handle and trim, wave cork for the body. Trying a 660 grain Airflow spey/switch on an Islander LX4.5 for the first trip to the river.
Thanks for the kind words everyone, I enjoy building these Spey rods.
Sixheads- wave cork is made by Custom Fly Grips in 1/2 and 1/4 inch discs. My first time using it and I plan to use it again - good stuff.
herkileez - Thanks for the line suggestion, sounds like I may be too heavy.
Bob - Thanks much for the kind words. I will pick up a 570 grain line before heading to the river. (By the way, I caught my biggest steelhead ever on Christmas eve while using the 12'6" 6/7/8 build I finished in December - what a great action. No picture, unable to operate an Iphone with neoprene gloves)
