Dana Gray Carlson "Four" Bamboo Fly Rod 7' 2/2 #4


An excellent Dana Gray "Carlson Four" model bamboo fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for what feels to me like a #4. Quad design. Fast dry fly action. The rod appears to be in near mint condition with just the slightest trace of grip soiling. The rod is nice and straight. Medium color cane done in a spiral node pattern. The varnish is excellent. "Carlson Four" inked on the butt along with "143-472". Wrapped red with black tipping at the grip, ferrules, and tip tops. Signature wraps. Hook keeper and a small carbide stripper. Oxidized 12/64 ferrules. 5 1/2" grip with a medium profile that is figured to mate with the square composite front cork check. Oxidized cap and ring over a mortised wood spacer and Dana's maker stamp is lightly pressed into the cap. The rod packs into a tan cloth bag and an aluminum tube with brass fittings. Dana's rods seldom come to market these days and if you're a fan of quads, you won't do better than this.

Shipping Information
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Other Terms
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
