The pink and black wraps and pink aluminum reel seat round out the rod's beauty and complement its name. GRACE comes in an 8'6", 5-weight in a 4-piece configuration. The rod is fast-action but with a soft feel resulting in a responsive, comfortable-to-cast fly rod. The GRACE rod has hard-chromed snake guides and comes in a pink rod tube.

Natural Fishing Porcelain Decor
From a tiny red cabin nestled amongst cypress trees and by a timeless pond, a family dreamed up the idea to capture America's most pristine treasures through art and porcelains. Hence, Red Cabin Pottery was born. Our ceramics are manufactured by Jersey Pottery on the small Island of Jersey off the coast of France using the finest Czech porcelains. By traveling from the rugged outback of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range in California to the sea side villages of Massachusetts, Mr. Bramble observed the species painted in their natural environment, enabling him to capture the unique beauty only seen by personal encounters. The choice of quality found in Mr. Bramble’s art and Jersey Pottery’s ceramics was intentional, and has led to a practical ceramic that expresses the level of responsibility we have to artisans, honest business owners, and fair trade practices. Currently featured is the American Trout, and American Saltwater Series with the award winning watercolors of Great Britain's Richard Bramble. 15% of all sales will be donated to Casting for Recovery by entering the code "CFRRCP" in the checkout memo/notes section for your order.
