For those of you who don't hunt turkey, you should still be thankful to the NWTF, as the same conservation efforts that help turkeys also benefits the local trout population, too (& many other species as well).
The NWTF will be hosting their annual Sorting show in Nashville on February 14 through the 18th. This is an enormous event & if you're a turkey hunter you won't want to miss it. Earlier this year I was approached by Randy Gaskins of the National Wild Turkey Federation about making a special fly rod for their national convention. I was honored by the request & so went about making a rod that will be part of a larger fly fishing package they will offer at their convention.
- All cork grip reel seat w/ aluminum slide rings for reduced weight
- Mirror polished Nickle-Silver butt disc at the end of the rod
- Nickle-Silver winding check above the grip
- Chromed, stainless steel line guides, tip top, & stripping guide
- Orange silk thread wraps with fine black tipping
- Comes in a custom made brown rod bag
- All housed in a custom fit canvas covered PVC rod tube with padded ends, zippered closure, & leather tag describing the rod inside
If you can attend the convention this year, great! If you can't make it there, please consider supporting the NWTF in any way that you can.
