Spinning rod build

I didn't see a section for rod building, so I thought this was a semi appropriate place to post pics this new spinning rod I built.

Built it for my dad who is huge UW Huskies fan. Since they had a pretty good season I wanted to give him something to remember it, and even more importantly something to make buddies jealous.

He has been using my gear every time we go fishing together lately, and always comments on how smooth the Shimano Sienna 2500 I have is and it matched the purple and gold quite well.

Its my first spinning rod build, and first attempt at a tiger wrap. Its not perfect, but he thinks it is!

Very nice indeed! Well done, especially for a first time! Only thing is those colors should be green and yellow ;)

Just messing with ya, I was going for the Huskies all the way in that one. I'm so sick of Bama, go Clemson tonite!

Those colors look great with the reel as well, purdy rod :thumb:
