CFF Auction for May

Euro nymphing is all the rage. So we have an opportunity for all you raging CFF members – a custom built 10′, 4 wt nymphing rod!

As a byproduct of the CFF rod building class, member John Warren donated his rod kit for George Coutts to finish building as a club auction item.

Details: 10’, 4 piece, 4wt, Euro Nymphing rod,  PacBay blank (gloss black), maroon thread wraps. (George reports the total rod weight is only 3.5 oz.)

“GLOSS BLACK – THE PACBAY Quickline series of rod blanks is lighter and more sensitive than anything they have offered before, providing premium performance and craftsmanship to rod builders who require the very best.  In addition to some time-honored lengths and actions, there are also application specific models offered as well.  Try one yourself and see why Quickline is the flagship of our rod blank lineup.”

This auction will run until Monday, May 20 at 5:00 p.m. and is open to paid up CFF members only. To make a bid go to Auctions. If you have any questions please contact me at bartschp@gmail.com.
