Custom Rod Build (Czech Nymphing)

With Czech Nymphing becoming more popular I decided I wanted to make myself a fly rod specifically used for Czech Nymphing. The blank is a 10' 4wt fiberglass 4 piece with gold guides and a custom forearm grip (Reverse Half-Wells) and butt cap.
The pictures are prior to me applying my usual 3 coats of thread finish.


The first picture is the forearm layout which once dried I turn down on a lathe. The ability to custom make a fishing rod is very satisfying and the fit and finish can be modified to fit each angler.

Very NICE! Once you have a dedicated nymphing rod you won't go back. Question though. Do you like the larger butt cap? I always associated those with a heavier rod so you could put the butt in your gut and let the fish run. Either way awesome build. What type of action? Also do you like a reverse spine on your nymphing rod? I like the reverse spine for a quick reset cast in faster water.

I use the butt section to balance the rod versus using the butt section to bury in my gut when a fish would run, frankly I've never landed a fish that caused me to do that. I like to balance my rods so my wrist doesnt get fatigued after hours of fishing, I dont have to 'fight' the rod to make it do what I want.
This rod does not have a reverse spine on it. Anytime I would reverse the spine on a rod is if I make a baitcasting rod, other then that, all the spines I make are on the belly of the blank(s). But, this is another reason why I like building rods, maybe the next rod I make I might reverse the spine and find that I really like it, that is the fun of building, finding that perfect recipe.
