FSA Black River Steel Series Fly Rod

A good friend of mine decided to get into rod building recently.  It was a way for him to stay close to fishing while his family grew by one.  Since he has never built a fly rod and I have never ordered a custom rod, we talked out the specs for a fly rod.
I was interested in a fly rod that was perfect for the different water types I fish.  We flirted with the idea of adding my blog title onto the rod.  The picture below shows the title right above the cork grip.

Let me just say, I could not be more happier with this rod.  It casts like a dream and is very light weight.  The 8ft. 4wt. rod has been used on a few rivers and lakes now.  I have not had a chance to bring anything with size to hand on it yet, but I sure do look forward to it.  The sensitivity of the rod really helps pick up on those light subtle hits.
Ed at Four Season Angler (FSA) did an outstanding job.  Not only is he a crafty rod builder, but he is an excellent fisherman and writer.  His blog is under repair right now, but he can be contacted on Facebook at TheFour SeasonAngler.  Contact him for all your rod building needs.  He has built countless number of spinning and bait casting rods along with a few fly rods.  Great service, great products, for a great price.
