This is a rod I put together for my close personal friend, Matt Snyder. A few months back, Matt tragically and unexpectedly lost his brother in law, Jarret to a stroke he suffer in his sleep. We put a small portion of his ashes in the split grip area, and a sprinkle around the hook keeper. Jarret was a devoted bass fisherman, and especially enjoyed walking into Loveland reservoir which was close to his home in Alpine. Definitely left a void. Everyone in our circle of friends miss him very much...

Beautiful rod! That's a fitting tribute to say the least. I'm sorry for the loss of your friend Jim.

Beautiful work Jim, I don’t know either personally but this still choked me up a little bit. What a wonderful tribute.
