JP Ross "Black Magic" Build

Jordan Ross of JP Ross Fly Rods & Co. sent along photographs of a recent build which includes quite a bit of handiwork to customize this fly rod beyond the expected.  

Jordan wrote...  "Shown in these photographs is a fly rod that we just finished and named  "Black Magic".  I do not know who made the blank but a friend of mine brought it to me to build as a surprise for one of his friends.  I think it came out good and includes an old style black metal reel seat with some decorative hand work.  I also did a bit of marbling on the grip too.  The fly rod casts well and has a typical glass feel to it."

JP Ross Fly Rods & Co. can complete fiberglass builds on their Reuben Wood blanks or blanks that are provided to them by clients.  These builds can be uniquely customized with feather inlays, inscriptions, and engravings.  In the end each fly rod is thoroughly inspected and a wax Celtic seal is placed on the handle by Jordan as a final touch. 

Contact Jordan by email if you have any questions or would like to place an order.
