A nice Gary Howells fly rod, 7', 2-piece, 2 tip, built for a #4 line. Weighs 2.7 ounces. Serial #4069. The rod action is on the slower side of medium. Excellent used condition. The grip and seat have been cleaned but the rod is straight and the ferrule fits are right. The cane is a dark wheat straw oven temper done in a three up node pattern. The wraps are Gary's usual brown with yellow edges. SRMC #10 carbide stripper and chrome guides and tip tops. Excellent varnish. The grip is 5 1/2" long and done in the Western or Payne style. The reel seat is a mortised cork with an aluminum ring and pocket cap. Delrin bottom. The rod bag is bright red and the tube is all aluminum with Gary's data sticker in excellent original condition. It's rare to find Howells rods in this length and configuration.
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.
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.
