SKU: 581

A nice Hal Bacon (Kosmic Rod Co) fly rod, a 46-4 "Catskill" model, 6', 3-piece, 2-tips, built for a #4 line. Serial #06106. 2.7 oz. Excellent used condition. A crisp, fast action. The rod has very light hand soiling to the grip, some reel foot impressions to the slide band seat, and a small hook graze scratch about 3" up from the keeper wrap but it does not go through to the bamboo.  The bamboo itself is wheat straw color and the rod has a three up node pattern construction. The wraps are a light-colored tan main with red edges and a black band at the male ferrules which are wrapped in light olive. The ferrules are Leonard style step down and all the hardware is polished bright. The reel seat is varnished tiger maple wood with a cap and ring slide band. The cap has a roll die stamp "Kosmic" in a cartouche and underneath "Kosmic rod co L.L.C."  The grip is a finely pointed cigar about 5" long. The rod packs into a tan cloth bag and an aluminum tube with a brass top and bottom.
