    Metallic Gold & Purple Tiger

    Here is my latest tiger wrap. It's a combo I've done quite a few times...met. purple 9468-D and met gold 9000-D with 50-D top wrap. I put it on a BTG 690-J for a customer's son's 1st custom rod. Hope Chase likes it! Bobby~

    Door prize for the WCCRS

    Here is a sneak peak of the rod we'll be giving away at the West Coast Custom Rod Show on May 2nd. It's a Calstar BT6465 with Fuji turbos and an Aftco reel seat. It'll make a great yo-yo and dropper-loop stick for some lucky angler. See you all there!!! Bobby Gowin Glenn's Tackle Costa Mesa, CA
