Cordova Custom Rods - Birch Bark & Glass

For the past couple weeks I've been watching Daniel Hughes, of Cordova Custom Rods, working his way through this Swift Fly Fishing Epic 480 build, complete with birch bark handle. 

Talk about a sharp looking build and it's stellar to see how a grip like this comes together.  Needless to say it involves many hours to get it done just right.

Follow along on the Cordova Custom Rods Facebook and Instagram for the latest shop news.

This Epic 480 build is available for purchase.  Contact Daniel Hughes by email for the details.

Beautiful! And a perfect choice of blank for it. How does a birch bark grip feel compared to cork? I imagine it's slightly firmer. Looks like it would be a little slicker from being sealed?
