We designed this blank with steelhead fishing in mind. Our 11' 8wt. offers plenty of power to turn over sink tips and also works great for fishing nymph rigs with a floating line. The medium/fast action is excellent for indicator rigs where mending is necessary.
We chose a raw carbon finish with a semi-gloss top coat for the blank. This allows a neutral pallet that opens wide the range of hardware and thread colors that will work. Each blank ships with a rod sock and a specs. label (you can order a custom label below).
