CAST AND BLAST
TOM MORGAN RODSMITHS COLLABORATION WITH HILL ROD AND GUN
We teamed up with Charlie Pfleger, owner of Hill Rod and Gun here in BZN, to bring you this one of a kind package. It started with a daydream one afternoon of partnering on a project highlighting the attention to detail and craftsmanship that we both bring to our work and the idea was born from there: Let’s take a fine English shotgun from Charlie’s collection, a bamboo rod from our workshop and build out a unique antique case to house them both. It was a lot of fun to create and we would all be honored to build you one of your own.
The rod is a Tom Morgan Rodsmiths bamboo 3pc 7'6" 4wt. Our hollow fluted hex rod is appointed with traditional merlot wraps set against a blond Spar varnished blank. The reel seat is walnut to match the gun stock and has nickel silver hardware. Guides are snake brand with a custom red agate stripping guide. The 7'6" 4wt is a medium action full flexing rod ideal for throwing dry flies on spring creeks and smaller rivers.
The shotgun is an Issac Fox , Canterbury, UK 20 bore, 2 1/2" chambered, with 27" barrels choked in Cylinder/Skeet 1. There is a 14 3/4" length of pull to a checkered butt. Well figured wood with beautiful fiddle grain running through both sides of the stock - side panels with sharp drop points are also featured. Action has sharp banner and scroll engraving with moderate to strong original case colors remaining. Double triggers and a third fastener round out this fine gun. Easy to carry at 5lbs 6oz. Light, quick and open choked, this makes for a superb Quail or early season Hun gun.
