This rod offers a bit more reach for mending than our shorter 4wt rods. The 9' 4wt has more power through the butt than the 864 for longer casts in the wind. Ideal for throwing dry flies or light nymph rigs. This rod is done on a clear blank with downlocking hardware, western cigar grip and a beautiful dark figured reel seat insert. The inscription says "The Ruby" because we were daydreaming about taking this rod to the Ruby River on the day our calligrapher Beth came in to write.
