Custom Hand Made Michigan Au Sable River Fly Rod(270 views)
Description: Brand new, custom hand-made double-wrap Michigan Au Sable River fly rod. Near Michigan???s famous Au Sable River trout streams, Pace & Hong Auctions is the exclusive Michigan auction house representing hand-made Tonkin cane fly rods by Dave Kowalski. These exquisite bamboo rods are split, papered and custom thread wraps encircle the eyelets. The range equates to a 3-4 weight rod. Kowalski uses Tonkin bamboo given it???s one of the strongest species with a high density of fibers, giving the rod both strength and flexibility. The bamboo culms are split multiple times into smaller and smaller strips, which are planed and glued together to form a blank. This process, together with the wrapping of the guides with very fine silk thread, smooth varnishing and the making of the grip and reel seat results in the beautiful fly rod you see in the pictures. By the way, did we mention that these are guaranteed to catch fish! Sold "as is". We ship worldwide.
