Here we offer you a short creek rod made by the dutch rod- and reelmaker Ids Schukken.
It is 5´ (approx. 152,5 cm) short and is perfectly suited for overgrown streams and creeks.
The two-piece #3/4 is in an excellent condition. If it has been fished at all then only a few times.
It has cihar shaped grip made of premium grade cork.
Ids used a downlocking reel seat for the finest and smallest fly reels. All metal parts for the rod were made by Ids himself.
About “Schukken design”:
Ids Schukken was born in 1949 in Tjerkwerd in the dutch province Friesland.
In his professional life Ids worked as a teacher at a technical high school. He has been flyfishing for 40 years so it was an easy choice to start building split cane rods and reels. By now he is looking back on 35 years in rodbuilding and 25 years in reelmaking.
Ids only builds rods and reels during wintertime. In summer he concentrates on fishing the polders of his home area for pike and pikeperch.
Through his work in a technical high school Ids is a true expert using a turning bench, a milling machine and other tools.
The products made by “Schukken design” will never be available in big numbers because he does every work step himself.
Buying a “Schukken design” product, you will receive a handmade piece of outstanding quality.
