Gary Howells Bamboo Fly Rod 7'6" 2/2 #4


A very nice Gary Howells bamboo fly rod, 7'6", 2-piece, 2-tip, and built for a #4 line. Serial #4916. The rod weighs 3.2 ounces on my scale. Mint condition with the original paper on the grip. Medium action. The cane is a medium to dark wheatstraw oven temper with two opposed nodes. It is a marvel that Gary could put out as many rods as he did with this kind of superior varnish finish - just superb. #8 carbide stripper and chrome guides and tip tops. Brown main wraps with yellow edges. The rod is pin straight. The grip is 6" long and turned to a western profile. The seat is mortised cork with a polished aluminum slide band and a formed all-aluminum pocket cap. The rod packs into a red cloth bag and a gray frost coated tube with Gary's data sticker affixed to it. You don't find many rods like this with paper still on the grip. A beauty.

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.
