This beautiful rod was ordered for a first, ever bonefish trip. Unfortunately, broken bones and torn ligaments in my casting hand caused the cancellation for that trip. Since then, we have decided that my February/March fishing trip will continue to be in the PNW for winter steelhead. This rod is brand new, it has never been cast nor has a reel been attached. C.F. Burkheimer is a small, craft rod shop in Washougal, WA where Kerry and his crew make outstanding graphite and fiberglass rods as well as Spey rods. This particular rod was finished in his Presentation series cosmetics with deep blue blank and titanium hardware. Normally this rod would sell for $850.00 plus the upgrades for the titanium hardware. For Sale for $650.00 shipped anywhere in the USA. Buyer has a seven day review period during which he can return the rod, less shipping costs. PayPal preferred. Serious inquires via email.
