This stunning custom-built rod was created especially for the CFR Holiday Auction 2011 by rodmaker Dennis Harper of Harper Custom Rods. It is a medium-fast action, 9'6", 4-piece, 5-weight fly rod. The lightweight blank is a Five Rivers Signature V, made from 60 million modulus graphite which is very sensitive, easy to cast, and generates very fast line speeds.
The components, selected to maximize rod performance, include a Fuji ceramic insert tip-top and stripper guide and light wire snake guides. The western-style grip and reel seat feature Amboyna burl sap-heart wood interface, Purple Heart, Horn, and pre-banned ivory (CITES Treaty).
The butt section is highlighted by a multi-layered feather inlay featuring feathers from the Amherst pheasant, Peacock pheasant, and Jungle cock. (Click here to read more about Harper's feather inlay process.)
This is a gorgeous one-of-a-kind, high-performance fly rod.
