Little po po

So I got this reel seat from Lance Dupre years ago and its been sitting just waiting on a build. Finally got one that I could use it on. I liked it....something different.

Build on an AMTAK Matrix AMP842 blank cut down to 6'6" The seat was a lizard skin print, hydro dipped I believe, with kind of a blue/grey and green color to it. The grips I made using some blue and green river burl rings from Steve Wann at FUGU. For the guides I ran some Alps polished guides....just really like their guides.

So the color matching the thread to the reel seat was a challenge. Did a lot of testing of different threads and ended up with some Gudebrod and Fish Hawk nylons without any color preserver on it. Honestly....I think it matched pretty darn well. Almost hated to see that seat leave my rod room it had been there so long 🙂

That's cool! I've built a few rods for speckled trout on that blank. really liked the green matrix.

Thanks for all your rod pics this weekend.

Yeah I wish they still did the green. I tried to find 1 or 2 just to build on them but had no luck. Cool looking blanks

Sharp as usual. I believe Phenix has a blank with green twill in it. Not sure if its still offered.
