Default My New TFO Finesse Series Rod

This is the newest addition to my arsenal...a TFO Finesse Series 7'9" 3 wt. I elected to use REC Recoil Guides, an REC uplocking reel seat (with spalted maple insert), and a modified cigar grip. The goal of this project was to produce a delicate small stream rod (with beautiful components), at an affordable price. I am very pleased with the results. This rod has a soft action that feels incredibly smooth in hand. It will be perfect for its intended purpose...casting tiny dry flies to fiesty, wild trout.

I matched the thread color as closely as possible to the rod blank
