Graywolf Rods - Kabuto Rods 7643

I know that I have been sharing a lot of custom fly rods lately but this Graywolf Rods build on a Kabuto Rods four weight blank is just so striking in so many different way.  Solid work, Shane.

The rod came out very well and I look forward to his reaction when he sees it in person."

I'm not a big fan of white blanks but that's beautiful. All the colors come together like they are members of the same family. A really great presentation.

WOW!!! That rod shows true craftsmanship & why certain angler gravitate to the custom rod builders. Well done.

Nicely done. I just completed the same rod with green wraps and feather inlays. I can't wait to see the owners face when delivered
