Had a nice day on the water with my Dad and Jon in the upper Rogue. Beautiful weather and some cooperative fish made for a fantastic day. My dad had a blast fighting all the hard pulling acrobatic steelhead to the boat. The smile says it all!

Just completed 3 Steelhead/Salmon Rods. These rods were built using Rogue SH 965 9’6″ 8-17# blanks. Two were made with carbon fiber split grip handles, one with a full length carbon fiber handle. The new Fuji ACS reel seats were used and I am really pleased with them, I think they will be very comfortable to fish with all day! Did some decorative butt wraps on the rear section of the two split grip rods. These three rods are ready to bring some fish to the net!! They came out AWESOME!!
Frank Galusha from myoutdoorbuddy.com contacted me and we discussed doing an article about the benefits and advantages of having a custom rod built. The article can be found here http://www.myoutdoorbuddy.com/fishing_report.php?fishing=4278
