It is not everyday that a rodbuilder dream comes through but this time I had the great chance to mount on this magical River Cast fly rod the limited edition of Ari ´t Hart Astrid fly reel & seat combo!
Not to everyone´s liking but the end results is striking! This super light reel and reel seat combination gives this rod a true custom look to say the least!
I´ve received this nice comment from Mr T. Geoffroy-Chateau, Vice President of Exclusive Reels saying: "...The combination looks absolutely stunning..."
To measure up with this, I´ve mounted a custom grip made of the finest walnut burl, exotic burl and bark, as well as an scrimshaw insert depicting a mayfly. To finish the rest, snake Recoil guides and voilà! a top fly rod ready to go after the finest brownies!
