For the angler with an appetite for aesthetics, Rick has developed the Premier Model. For this model, Rick uses a highly figured mortised reel seat with an engraved nickel silver sliding band and butt cap. The bamboo is flamed, giving the rod a variation of browns, tans, and blondes. The classic cigar grip is used. Wraps, including tipping, are the colors of your choice. Nickel silver ferrule plugs are included. An agate stripping guide sets off the rod to make it a special instrument to fish or show off.
|On Rick's Premier Model . . . "As
you said it is a rod made to fish. I look forward to many happy times on
the water with it."
. . . Vice President Dick Cheney
A striking aspect of this rod is the hand engraving on reel seat components and ferrules. This "bright cut" style of western engraving is done by Rick's nephew, Nick Cunningham.
This 7' 9" rod for a 5-weight line is Rick's "go-to" rod for most of his trout fishing.
