description: "PRICE REDUCED OFF RETAIL BY $300.00" Dynamic Rod from Erik Peterson of Linnéa Rods. This rod was made in a quad at my request and is the only quad in this model to date. All Erik's rods feature Everett Garrison-style node staggering. The cane is heat-tempered to a dark blond color with gold silk wraps and brown tipping, radically hollow built to within 6" from the tip tops, and then finished with a very fine coat of semi-gloss varnish. The butt section has four brown two-turn intermediate wraps to demarcate the 18", 20", 22" and 24" points on the rod. This trout rods has an up-locking slide band. All reel seat components are machined in my shop from nickel-silver. The inserts are constructed from hard woods (usually Arctic Birch). The Dalles Rod and Gun Club is a located on the Deschutes River in Oregon. Every Spring Erik visit the club with his friends Clint Bailey and James Harrington and they have the first opportunity of the year to field test the rods that Erik designed the previous winter. The waters adjacent to the club are lined with large Alders and when the bugs are emerging, the rainbows stack up along the banks and under the trees to feed. To catch these fish an angler must use stealth to approach and once in position, he must make precise casts to be effective. Like the river, the Bedsides Rainbows are large and powerful. Erik designed the 774-3 with these circumstances and conditions in mind. The rod is medium fast with the power to turn large fish and very accurate in its casting characteristics with the ability to deliver flies on a dime. Its tip tapers to .054 to protect fine tippets and with its length, the 774-3 is perfect for fishing the somewhat confined areas that are presented to the Deschutes angler. You will love this rod!
