I've been fly fishing now for nearly two years and I've wanted a custom rod for a long time. I was able to afford one so I ordered one from Gene Bethea "pearow". I wanted a 3 wt fiberglass so he made me a Tadpole which is typically a 4/5 wt rod. He offset the ferrules which lowered it to a 3/4 wt. I tried it out first with 3WF line and it cast really well. I then tried 5WF with less successful results so I went back to 3WF. I am sooooo happy that it is a 3 wt.
Here it is (bottom rod in first two pics)
here are the first fish
