An Orvis Battenkill bamboo fly rod, 8'6", 2-piece, 2-tips, and built for a #9 line. Serial #68750. 6.5 ounces. Very good condition, straight and with nice tight ferrules. Medium action. Three opposed node pattern in dark chestnut colored cane. The ferrules are oxidized. The wraps are brown with a carbide stripper and chrome snake guides. The grip is 6 1/2" long and done in a medium cigar profile, which shows some hand soiling. The reel seat is an all aluminum downlocking screwlock with a pocket cap and a self storing fighting butt that is adjustable up to 2". The rod packs into an original green cloth bag and an all aluminum grey anodized rod tube with the original Orvis data sticker still largely intact.
