This is my newest personal rod in the arsenal for Steelhead/Salmon/Lakers/LRB's.

The Blank is a 10' 8wt CTS Affinity Plus in Golden Olive color. Reel seat insert is a super nice two tone piece of Amboyna Burl With REC NSB nickle silver hardware. The grips are a mix of cork, Copanza cork, rubberized cork and craft foam. For the plug on the rear grip I used a plug that's from a removable fighting butt and epoixed it in place in the rear grip since the silver with knurled edges matched the winding check so well. The wraps are black and then I did four turns of chestnut next to the black main wrap to match the Amboyba, and then a single turn of silver next to that. Also did a trim wrap of chestnut on the REC hardware to match the seat. A single Fuji inserted stripper with a set of silver double foot snake guides, a flip down hook keeper and a silver knurled winding check round it out.

I think to date this may very well be my favorite personal rod I have built for myself.
