Lamiglas Honey Glass 8' 5wt

I have just finished this rod, built on a Lamiglas E glass blank. It is currently very hot and windy-not the greatest fishing weather, but I am hoping to test it on the water sometime during the next week. It is soft actioned and I am hoping to use it for nymphs, wets, and hoppers. I shot some close-up photos of the rod which you can see as a collage below. The main wraps are tan, with rust and chestnut trims. Notice how tan becomes translucent on the yellow blank. The reel seat insert is burled walnut, and I used single foot Ti guides and H&H stripper.

Thanks, Hitoshi! I also liked this 8' model with DT4 line.

However, Lamiglas 7'6" 4wt honey blank was my favorite of the bunch.
