My new custom build - Thanks to Booten

Recommended Posts

I got to meet Booten last year through BR and Pitchinkid. His sense of humor was greatly appreciated on board my boat from the very first outing, not to mention he is a pretty d**n good stick too. I enjoyed his company on the Kentucky Lake trip, especially the gut busting discussions we had at the camp. Dude, you do impersonations like no other!

He surprised me with this rod on the trip...Custom 6'6" MH spiral wrapped to the right with micro guides and EVA foam handle with burled cork butt. It makes for one sick jerkbait rod which I didn't have in my arsenal. I would like to make a public thank you to Brian for this awesome rod. I had to go with the custom TD-Z for the custom rod, match made in heaven. :)

Sorry for all the pics, I just really like the rod. Thanks Brian!!

Pretty rod! Now how does she fish??

Perfect tip down presentation rod.  Don't have to deal with smacking the water like I do with longer rods.

You should see this thing in person. Unreal

The guides are so small, it looks like a blank with a reel seat attached. Very stealthy.

That is a freakin' sick rod.  I had the pleasure of watching Jimzee throw it for the first time.  He reminded me of a little girl at a Jonas Brothers concert.   ;D

You invited me, figured it would be rude to turn you down.

Besides, I was going to type "Hanson" but thought no one would know who I meant

If they don't know mmm bop, they can go to hell.

If I had a nickle for every time I've said that....

Wow I'm not sure how I missed this, but thanks for the kind words!

 Its truely a privelege to be able to fish with guys like we have here.  Jimzee is a great individual, he opened his house to a group of fisherman last year, and refused to accept any compensation.  

I'm by no means an expert builder, but if I can give my friends the benefits of my services, I'm more than happy to do so.

I hope you guys get great use out of those rods, I really enjoyed making them!

So when is BootenRods.com going to be up and running?   :)

Ronnie, you build a pretty mean stick yourself.  Every jig fish I caught in Kentucky was on your custom.  Thanks again buddy!!

I'll take some pics when I'm done painting.  I'm working on some red ones now.  I'm trying to pick up one or two more td-z's, but they are getting scarce.
