John Gallas Parabolic Fly Rod 7'9" 2/2 #5

An excellent J.W. Gallas rod, a 7'9" 5wt. 2-piece, 2-tip "Parabolic". Medium fast and very powerful action. Judging by the wear on the guides, only one tip has been cast just a few times. The rod is straight and the Super Z style ferrules are tight. Varnished flamed shafts are wrapped green with black edges. Medium cigar grip with nicely done ring and pocket cap with alternating bands of walnut, cork, and walnut. Nicely made ferrule plug. A few minor chips in the oxidation on the cap. It has become harder to find craftsmen willing to do fine varnish work but John Gallas is one of those willing to go the extra mile. An excellent example of his work. Comes with a brass-topped aluminum tube.

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.
