Default Cabin Fever Project #1

Had a serious case of "cabin fever" in late January so I decided to build my first fly rod in over two years. I have been curious about the Sevier Manufacturing rod blanks for a year or so and decided to give them a shot. The owner, Dave is a great guy to deal with and I was originally interested in the "Tiger Eye" blanks, but he made me a deal I couldn't refuse on a pewter finish blank 2/3 weight, 4 pc. Not sure if he'll be getting any more of these, but I wanted to try one in addition to a 3/4 weight in the Tiger Eye finish. Pics aren't the greatest, but I am pretty happy with how it turned out, and I like the moderate action. Hope to try it out in the Smokies this weekend.

The Tiger Eye build is drying as I type this message. I'll post pics of it once it is dry. Tried a different look on that blank, wraps and color of guides.
