I had the pleasure of teaming up with Holland Ney of Anadromous Rods and filmed the process of building a custom rod from start to finish. Unlike just a normal build though, there were many intricate facets added to this rod and well thought out design features. Holland is a master at his craft and it was a blast to witness the high attention to detail he put into this rod as well as all the rods he builds.
The canvas that was to be built upon was a Sage Method 590-4 and because of the fact it is a red blank it fit perfectly with the Rivers of Recovery theme. Rivers of Recovery also donated a custom matching Abel reel to cap off the build. The rod and reel were made to be auctioned off at the Modesto Fly Fishing Film Tour on April 17th, 2014 and one lucky soul walked out with one of the best setups you could dream of!
