The Amber 476 Fly Rod by Christian Strixner

The Amber 476

December 12, 2013 1 min read

Every year my friend Christian & his lovely wife Tina travel from Germany to New Zealand to fish, last year when they returned home Christian took 3 Epic blanks with him to build up into rods for some of his New Zealand mates.

The chosen few were Bob Wyatt, Dan Isbister and I'm very happy to say, your's truly.

Christian is a man of many talents, one of those being his exquisitely crafted bamboo fly rods which can be seen on his website Splitting the Cane

Prior to him leaving after last season I mentioned that I'd quite fancy a stacked bamboo reel seat - only half joking...

Well here it is, the most exquisite thing I think I've ever seen.

Thank you Christian ;)

 

Blank: Epic 476 FastGlass

Guides: Snake Brand, black nickel

Stripper: Ti frame with gold Zirconium insert

Stacked Bamboo reel-seat.

Silk wraps with two turn black silk trims.
