This rod was built on a Forecast F907-4 9′ 7 WT 4 pc blank from Batson Enterprises. This rod was built as a nymphing rod for fishing many popular tributaries of Steelhead Alley. The shorter length allows for close quarter casts in small streams, but doesn’t lack enough power to fish larger water either. The handle and fighting butt is comprised of a mix of rubberized and natural cork, reel seat insert is custom turned Blue Box Elder Burl matched with RA-7 hardware. Thread is pro wrap blurple and azul pac bay trim, which exhibits a wonderful color in natural light against the purple/blue hue of the blank. Guides are Forecast BUD guides matched with ALPS XTCSFGP single foot guides, finished with an oversize tip top to prevent ice up in winter fishing conditions.
