Chris Bogart's Yellow Rose

Length: 7 ' 2 pc
Line weight: DT #2
Ferrule size 11/64

This started out as my Shenandoah Lite and is now called "Yellow Rose". I named it after my signature fly shown on my homepage and also because I put Pink! silk wraps with yellows tipping on it (looks beautiful). I have fished this rod and it is a dream. A little longer rod that will power a 2 wt line nicely yet will cast leader only out to as far as you need to go on a mountain stream. It is as accurate as you want for a rod. The original taper given to me by Jon Parker, was a one piece nodeless. I modified it and built it as a 2 piece nodeless that seemed to have captured the original taper just fine. I will have this rod at Grayling. I have cast a spring creek 2WT DT, a "H" level taper enameled silk. and a Phoenix 2wt DT with it. For my money the level taper line really makes this rod perform.
