Not really spey related, but I think appreciated by some here. North Fork Composites Iconoglass 8’6” 8wt. Blank is made in Woodland Washington. I wanted a removable fighting butt and black wraps, Steve and I talked about grip shape and length, the rest is all Steve. I had asked for no feather inlay, after he had started on the build he expressed wanting to do an inlay - always listen to your craftsman! I couldn’t be happier.
