SKU: 623

An excellent RL Winston San Francisco Era fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, weighing 3 1/2 ounces. Serial #9372. Very lightly used condition. The grip is clean, there are tiny ferrule wrap cracks on one tip, a one tip has had glancing blow from a hook which left a small scratch in the varnish. Otherwise the rod appears new. Medium fast action for a #5 or #6 line. Light blonde oven temper cane with a 3-up node pattern. The varnish is good but has some slight dust blobs here and there. One tip has a tiny rotten spot in the corner of the facet. Wrapped tan with maroon edges. Carbide stripper with chrome guides and tip-tops. Original owner's name lettered on the rod. The grip is 5 1/2" in a half wells design. Polished aluminum downlocking reel seat hardware with a bakelite spacer. Red cloth Winston logo bag with a leather pull tab. The rod tube still has 100% of the original Winston sticker on it.
