Leiderman Rods Morgan Five Weight

Matt Leiderman of Leiderman Rods certainly doesn't build as many fly rods as most of the other small shop builders but what he lacks in quantity he more than makes up for in quality.  Matt recently finished an 8' five weight custom build on a Tom Morgan Rodsmiths blank that turned out beyond excellent.  

Matt wrote... "This blank was sent by a client who has been sitting on it since May 2011. Similar to the other Morgan build I completed about a year ago except it features blued hardware and silver script.  The reel seat is redwood burl and matches the depth of the glass weave well.  I'm crossing fingers for more of these because they are a joy to work on!  Let's hope Tom gets them pumping out soon!"

I spoke with Tom Morgan last week and it sounds like Matt's rod building prayers might soon be answered as they are now receiving blanks and getting them shipped out as quickly as possible to everyone that has been eagerly waiting.
