Tightloop Fly Rods - First Morgan Build

There are a lot of phenomenal fiberglass fly rod blanks that are available now to custom and hobby builders, but the long awaited Tom Morgan Rodsmiths blanks are certainly some of the finest offered.  These E-Glass fiberglass blanks are rolled by Kerry Burkheimer and though it took several years to work out the details, these blanks finally met Tom Morgan's approval. 

George Minculete of Tightloop Fly Rods just finished his first of several Morgan builds and this seven foot three weight turned out beautifully.  

George wrote...  "This rod is a timeless, modern classic. The aesthetics of this beauty have an understated elegance. It's a rod that will never go out of style. This is heirloom quality to be passed to your childs, grandchilds or dear friends. I'll happily fish a Tom Morgan rod today or when I'll be seventy. It has wonderful progressive feel that no other rod has. It is gracefully harmonious."
