  The Drake is a 8' 5wt. fiberglass blank that features a smooth progressive action and quick tip recovery.  The Drake features tip over ferrules, a nice compact 4 piece design, and a medium brown finish.  The Drake is made from continuous filament E-glass.  I have been fishing the Drake with a DT 5wt. line with dry flies and it loads beautifully.  You can also overline the rod with a 6wt. for heavier streamer fishing.  The tippet protection is outstanding and the rod loads smooth and even.  

Please note:  The optional “hardware kit” below includes the following:  tip top, winding check, hook keeper, and a full set of guides. 

Each Drake blank comes with a rod sock and a spec. labels
