Here is a refinished Sage 490 LL rod, the famous "Light line" series designed by Don Green in 1982. I have kept the original reel seat and the cork on this rod. I gave the nickel parts some polishing, a new oil coat to the wood insert, sandpapered the cork handle, brand new thread wraps and a classy rod bag. This rod has now the highest finish quality just like all my custom rods. I was fortunated to find this rare Sage rod in good condition here in Romania and now my friend in Norway will happily fish this rod for years to come. Thanks for looking!

A heirloom quality Morgan fiberglass build I have finished recently on a special order. A very smooth taper that will do great on any smaller or medium sized stream. Appointed with the very finest components and materials like a "vintage" Struble D27 in dark nickel hardware and imbuya wood spacer, chestnut silk wraps finished in four layers, an exceptional coffee brown agate guide from Joe Arguello that compliments the parts perfectly. This special rod comes with a new very exquisite handcrafted leather rod tube, and the original Morgan tube as well. These fine leather tubes have a nice adjustable shoulder strap that makes them great for those backcountry trips or just for carring your favorite rod/s. They can be requested with a custom built rod or separately. As for what can be done, it all depends on sizes needed and leather availabilty. I have one more Morgan blank to finish in the coming weeks and expecting some new blanks to arrive from Tom Morgan soon. Thanks for looking!
