description: Very nice early Deschutes Rod Company built by Daryll Whitehead and completed on 1-6-93. Beautiful medium flamed colored Cane dark reddish brown wraps tipped in black at the ferrules and winding check, up-locking nickel silver reel seat with highly figured wood spacer complete with his trade mark ferrule plug and engraved nickel silver butt cap D.L. Whitehead Maker. Very nice medium fast dry fly action with reserve power for throwing tight loops on big water and or windy conditions. Another one of Mr. Whitehead's best and it shows in his stunning work and dedication to the art of rod building. Mr. Whiteheads early work is very hard to fine and this one is in Mint as new condition!
