Trout rod Build

Christmas is coming....and Boy of I'm really getting excited!

After all the salty builds......I am going to build a trout rod.

Kerry Burkheimer 9' 5wt blank (deep spruce green)
Burkies nickle silver seat and matching guide set
I will turn my own custom cork (and maybe wood trim) handle
garnet (or deep green wraps) with silver trim
some sort of feather inlay

I have an opportunity to fish private water in Colorado this Spring and I will be ready! Also hope to fish the Deleware again!

I will post up the progress.
