" The Creature Reacher " A Custom Made, Hand Built Float Rod By Andrew " The Wizard " Boyne
Not to mention the River Irwell brown trout record with a 10 lb plus fish.
Over the next few weeks we had numerous conversation regarding my style of fishing, venues I fish and my requirements for the new rod build
At first I decided on a shorter rod, a purely big fish tool. The first build was a beautifully 12 foot rod with purple and gold diamond wraps across the but section but Andrew being the perfectionist that he is was not happy with it but he drove down to show me the rod anyway.
It will be a full gloss black blank so the contrast to the gold tippets will be even more intense.
It didn't take me long to gather some information. A quick couple of calls to people in the know and I whole hartedly agreed with Andrews new choice of blank.
The Harrison blanks are famous for their quality and i was getting an SU which stands for Stepped Up “ version of the GTI range.
It will stop a tank.......
Just what I need for my style of fishing. Very similar to the Acolyte Plus but
MORE powerful. 😉
We were both mad busy getting family sorted for Christmas but we both found time to meet up.
As I fully intend to catch some Irwell lumps with it and will be my new big fish river rod.
( Lets hope I can live up to its name )
I am looking forward to test it in the next couple of weeks on the Ribble, hopefully with Andrew and Casterman.
I am over the moon with my new wand.
Thank you "Mr Wizard "
